@ketankshukla: I'm pretty sure the Visual Studio team isn't terribly keen on outsourcing parts of their core product to the Resharper people. They have a really good product from a feature perspective (I'm a paid subscriber and use it every day), but they've also managed to build a monster that really negatively affects VS's performance in a number of areas. Only Microsoft is going to be able to take a holistic view on the whole subject of code inspections and compilation, and build something that retains good performance through the whole UX.
I'm really glad to see some serious work has been done in the direction of making patching the .NET Framework a lot less intrusive. A lot of IT folks get really grumbly when it's time to patch the framework, because the NGEN process will run for 10+ minutes,
usually after a reboot, and quite often when the user is trying to get their day started.
I also have to say, Ms. Biswas is a really engaging and interesting person to listen to. It's always a big bonus when you can not only show your passion for your work, but explain it in a very clear way without a lot of umm'ing and ahh'ing.
You know what could be great fun, Charles, is to get all the non-Microsoft niners together that've got something to say about Channel 9 and what it's meant to them over the past five years, and put it in one place.
Charles, I really dig this particular style of Channel 9 video, with the two cameras and showing the back & forth between you and John. I imagine it's a bunch of extra work to get set up and to do editing etc. afterwards, but it works well and is very
enjoyable to watch and listen to.
