    Default New black and white Visual Studio 2011

    They did approve my Sinofsky comment through - guess he isn't very much liked there unlike Sinofsky's Windows blog

    That's ONE theme. Not even the default one.

    No it's not but it shows where they are going if they even bother promoting it in the first place.



    VS 2010



    VS 11

    They are about to launch new developers tool and they are talking about ****ing colours and pixel removals to supposedly make it good, there is no need for this tulip - keeping IDE familiar is far more important for productivity than engage in such whacko jacko ideas.

    Everyone seems to be moving to dark themes nowadays. I've no idea why, but I cannot say I like it.

    Linky for your Sinofsky comment? I don't fancy searching through 20+ pages of comments to find it.

    They probably think software developers are good at coping with change. Just be glad it doesn't use the ribbon.

    Indeed. What does it say about the actual content of the product that all the hype is about pretty-fying the GUI?

    And I'll put money on them having done absolutely nothing to solve all the random slow-down issues.
    Will work inside IR35. Or for food.

    What hype? It's one post on the blog.

    There's also a good deal of science behind use of colour - UX design is a proper field in its own right which is one thing the open-source community really needs to learn.

    WHS

    I totally ****ing hate Ribbon tulip - made products from 2010 unuseable

    Visual Studio team already made mistake in VS 2010 to use effing slow WPF just to prove it's ready for real world usage only to show that it's not and now they are going even further.

    If it wasn't for new .NET CLR in it I would not even consider upgrading to that tulip, will have to get automated builds or something whilst still using VS 2008 for development.

    Maybe you should have built SKA in C++, then you could use GCC and emacs and be safe from such hard concepts.
