    Well done. I find the development experience to be very strait forward and easy. This uses LightSwitch as the underlying technology and that is a very powerful tool. Just do a Bing/Google search...

    Great video!   I like the common screen set.  Very useful.  I am glad this project type is continue to be enhanced - We have a very successful application running a growing company, and it works very well!  Even as a stand-alone application.

    I now need to find out more about office 365. Some of my customers are "stuck" on office 2010 due to some third party apps that heavily use office. Wondering if you have to make the full conversion to this if you need to stay at Office 2010 for a while - may be another year.
