General Development "Looking past the Metro hype, the Build conference also revealed promising road maps for C#, Visual Studio, and the .Net platform as a whole. Perhaps the most exciting demo of the conference for .Net developers, however, was Project Roslyn, a new technology that Microsoft made available yesterday as a Community Technology Preview. Roslyn aims to bring powerful new features to C#, Visual Basic, and Visual Studio, but it's really much more than that. If it succeeds, it will reinvent how we view compilers and compiled languages altogether."

MS dev tools was bad well into the mid 90's. In fact, they only started getting good when Hejlsberg was hired in '96.


BS. I used VS, Watcom, *and* Borland tools, going back to the 80s. VS was already pretty well-integrated in the early 90s.

That's beside the point. MS dev tools wasn't "always" good. Period.


Right, said the pendantic.
