      Can't watch this right now because the streaming is still impossibly slow and there's no hi-res download format that works on Macs, but as I commented on the blog, cutting intellisense for C++/CLI pretty-much sucks. Great way to tell it's users that Microsoft doesn't care about that C++/CLI very much.

      I wonder why the C++/CLI intellisense got cut. Any more insides?

      Well What happened to the "10 IS THE NEW 6" stuff.. ??? not enough resource to implement intellisense support in time for C++/CLI ... ??? I am amazed .. because it is microsoft.... and they are saying.. they dont have time and resource to pull that off...  they didn't see it coming ??? Our company was planning on C++/CLI and now, we are not even going to upgrade to VS 2010. By the way VS 2010 was started with the hype that it is going to be a major release for C++ related technologies... I was really looking forward to that...

      Please write this in bold letters on the VS 2010 purchase website.... a few people might save some of their precious $$$$

      I am not sure who is managing the C++ related in business in microsoft.. but I can tell you something .. they should have fire him/her long ago

      so instead of a rebuilt improved intellisense, c++/cli devs get no intellisense at all? thats a kick in the nads.. Smiley im not a c++ guy so this doesnt affect me at all but if a was, woudnt vs2010 be a step down? vs2008 has some c++/cli intellisense, no?

      oh well.. dan and brian are only the messengers, we shoudnt shoot them Smiley still, sucks if youre a c++/cli guy..
