For you who did not know yet, the first Beta of Visual Studio 2010 Professional is now available for download. I just set it up on a VPC and I must say, first impressions are good.
So I have a soft spot for eyecandy. I think it’s incredibly important that the tool you work with just about 90% of your time looks slick. Whenever I go back to Visual Studio 2003 I have to work very hard not to get irritated by the (now) dated look of the UI. What’s also important is that the changes aren’t too major. In this case, I think the Visual Studio team has done a great job once again.
And I am not even mentioning all the techie goodness that comes with this release..
