Visual Studio 2010 install experience

Yesterday I’ve installed VS 2010 on my home computer.

Besides the numerous new features I’ve been amazed by the new web installer for Team System which is 5 MB in size, loads in seconds and looks like this.

The installer quietly downloads and installs all the selected features.

It is definitely the best install experience I ever had with a Microsoft product.

I didn’t have time to explore all the new features but so far I discovered some of the code editor tip and trick that will definitely make any programmer’s life easier.

Check out this video on channel9 which talks about the new code editor in Visual Studio 2010 http://channel9.msdn.com/shows/10-4/10-4-Episode-5-Code-Focused-in-Visual-Studio-2010/
