General Development Even though I'm not a programmer, I still know that while some programmers like the idea of graphical programming, whereas others shun the concept completely, opting for a more hands-on approach. While Microsoft is quite active in the field of graphical programming, the company's own high-level coders aren't very keen on the idea.

I think some nonprogrammers are maybe under the impression that programming in Visual Studio means "visual" programming with diagrams or something like that. While it does include visual designers for certain things -- most notably GUI forms, but also database schemas for example -- most developers who use Visual Studio, despite the name, spend most of their time in it editing program code text, just like any other development environment.
