  • Visual Studio 2010 as WPF app

    I still cant believe they're doing vs2010 with wpf and the mef.. thats so cool.
    Obviously this warrants a certain amount of excitement. I fear that you will get your "keyboard monkey" developer, that will just moan about how things have changed, and how VS2005 was the best evah!

    I do know that the features in team system about navigating an application that someone else has written for example, as a new recruit at a company, lend themselves very well to WPF, and the demos did look WPF'ish to me

  • Windows 7

    Is Segoe UI still the main font, or is there a new one?

    I've obviously missed something - where can the rest of us see it?

    And excuse my ignorance stevo, but what's the mef?
    Managed extensibility framework.

  • Live blogging

    I think it is of use to people who cannot watch video at work, or have poor internet connections. The thing is, all star bloggers are great at Windows 7 and nit-picking that. They all were a bit weak yesterday, where you would have needed an all star architect blogger to explain what Azure was.

    A quick review of their blogs now shows nothing architecturally edifying. Look it has a new calculator. Look it has a new taskbar. don't get me wrong, I love these new features as much as the next man but, Anders Heijsberg keynoted yesterday as well and they appear muted.

    These all star bloggers are good for Windows, but are rather not so good when you get a bit technical.

    For MSDN subscribers, yes; but for everyone else Vista was launched in January 2007 and VS2008 in March 2008.
    I used the 90 day trial from November to March. I also had the beta beta of Vista that had a 6 month Expiry so there are ways to get software way before release.

    Steve Sinofksy mentioned that the API  for 7 was feature complete. I still stand by my assertion that .NET 4.0 will be released when Windows 7 is released (just like Vista), because it makes sense to do so. All the enhancements to the framework will be used by Windows 7 and it's a great way to acheive maximum installs of .NET 4.0.

  • Windows 7 Preview VIDEO DOWNLOAD

    That was one of the most uninformative videos I have ever seen.  Thats 21 minutes I will never get back.  If this is Windows 7, You are making Linux job easier.
    Try and get Walmart to run on gNewSense.

     I'm afraid Azure is the future my friend, as gNewSense has been obliterated. Goodbye.

    So you really hope microsoft won't allow you to run Azure and any stuff you build on it in your own corporate environment, even though, according to you, that's what most business want?

    That's what I would call weird.

    I've developed an application that has business sensitive information, the company involved would certainly not want in the cloud. There are some end points though, that they would like their partners to access and Azure greatly simplifies that.

    Azure is not for every corporation, it is for interdependent business, with supplier and shippers and distribution centres and stores that all need to work harmoniously. If it is Christmas and 20 000 denims/jeans by Calvin Klien have a defect, the distribution centre can recall everything at once using Azure. This notifies the stores and suppliers and shipping and transport all at once, and they can start contingency planning. In real life all these companies all have different IT systems and people that run them and a cloud service would unify their operations, whilst not revealing any business sensitive information.

    This saves thousands (if not hundreds and millions of dollars) if you think of all the man hours used to pack unload and process the stock. Same thing for Food (especially for food companies). That is what Azure will excel at, not a typical corporate ISV.

    CEO and Directors of Walmart would have loved the Ozzie speech. Your typical developer would not have understood the complexities involved in moving goods etc. around the globe.

    Visual Studio 2005 was released in late 2005.
    Yes but that had some serious delays, and they've seriously changed the way they develop software since then. I remember Guthrie or Soma answering the question that way.

    I think because Visual Studio is now written mostly in .NET you can expect releases every couple of years. This is why there has been an explosion of releases from Microsoft. .NET is in some ways too successful, and we are now flooded with MVC this, ADO Data Services that.

    Unless something goes seriously wrong, anything written in managed code is going to ship quicker, and we as developers are going to have a hard time keeping up.

    Also, vs2010 - is this really going to be released late 2009 or early 2010? or sooner? seems like a long time to wait for c# 4..
    Office 2007 and Vista were released 2006. Visual Studio 2008 was released 2007.

    I think it's a case of choosing the year that business starts to shift to the new version. Most places are starting to shift to VS 2008 now.
