    Wow. I wish I knew about the not having to uninstall Visual Studio Express thing before doing the uninstall Visual Studio Express thing.

    I now know why Chris never became a singer Smiley

    I'll definately be checking out the customizer thing, I would love it if VS emulated the way Blend looks! Rat brained robots is a little weird.

    I read this thing about Unit 371 (I think - a Japanese experiment similar to the Názi experiments) where they kept a dogs head alive.. this reminded me of that, I suppose it's sortof in reverse Smiley

    Awesome show, as usual. First time I've been able to comment though! Smiley For some reason it wouldn't work before :\

    I couldn't agree more, my personal wish is that they unite the WPF designer teams so that VS gets all the niceties of Expression Blend rather than having to jump from one product to another to get things like IntelliSense and statement completion versus better designers, better resource support, etc

    actually I like how it looks now, there are so many things that needs to be fixed, how it looks is the last of them... there is place for improvements of course, but just copying Blend who has an awful UI is just plain crazy, improve performance, there is not time for play, I would say...

    The Wow starts now!  Think the wow campaign should have been saved for SP1.

    fx 3.5 sp1 and VSsp1 are amazing so far.  Astoria, new web services, Entity framework, designers, Dynamic Data, sql 2008 support, and the list goes on.  I remember watching these things grow on C9 over the years, but having them all come together in this SP release is just amazing to see and finally have.  Now I just need another 6 months to learn all this stuff...  Great job MS and congrats!

    Maaaaaan... you destroy my dreams!!!

    @Maddus: we needed a way that both of us could read the slides. But it seems really to look good to the viewer.

    i've been saying that for awhile the laptops detract from the video but like how it looks on the table.

    Yeah the laptop on the table works pretty well, it gives us an easy way to move back and forth between content on a decent-size display, hopefully w/o being too distracting
