I am hoping they have made substantial improvements that are not mentioned in this blog post.
Of course, that is the opposite of what I as a software developer want.
A keyboard macro system that doesn't suck (e.g., is available and /as fast/ as the one in Emacs).
A way to compare project configurations without involving either XML or a sea of random dialog-like boxes.
The TFS and workflow features they are adding make me weep.
The VS keyboard macro system has "overengineered" written all over it. Really all they had to do was record some keystrokes. Instead they probably had a team of like four engineers, a bunch of Q/A and several PMs on it, and it took them over a year. And the result /stinks/; it blows dead exploding goats.
It's more latency than long waits but it's enough to stop me using it.
But we've got 62 projects. I've turned off a few things like code analysis in R# and it runs fairly well.
