  • 10-4 Episode 2: Welcome to Visual Studio 2010

    Not only does the Visual Studio headlines still show 10-4 Episode 2 as  the lastest headline for Visual Studio, making me think there simply were no headlines, now I discover that the 10-4 show goes to episode 16.  Yes, the start page is useless.  And now Microsoft wants to put the burden of maintaining the start page on me?  I guess that's to be expected since they clearly have no intention of maintaining it themselves.
  • 10-4 Episode 2: Welcome to Visual Studio 2010

    It's interesting that someone commented on the Visual Studio 2010 start page here.  I just noticed the link on the VS2008 start page for this site in the Visual Studio Headlines section.  Since I hadn't noticed this title before, I clicked the link.  Now I see that the "headline" is 4 months old.  That is the reason I hadn't noticed the headline before: the visual studio start page, now in its 4th version (2002, 2003, 2005, and 2008) is still useless.  It doesn't update regularly and I think most developers, including me, just tune it out.  When, like happened today, something does catch my eye and I give in to the temptation to follow a link, I am not rewarded with the latest news about Visual Studio or development in the Microsoft world.  Instead I get reinforcement that the start page is useless. 

    And until the memory of today fades and I succumb to yet another outdated and worthless link in the Visual Studio start page,
