Visual Studio 2010 Back on Track

Visual Studio 2010 hit a minor glitch recently when beta testers complained of performance issues. Microsoft took a very public stance, detailing the issues and pushing back the product release.

Now VS 2010 is back on track, having reached release candidate status, which means it's feature-complete and basically tuned and ready to go. Testers think the extra time is worth it as the product is far faster than the beta.

The Microsoft developer group, I've found, is both transparent and listens to customers. I wish all division worked that way! What are your favorite and least favorite parts of Microsoft? Spill your beans at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
