Look what we've done

Let me summarize these VS 2011 advancements:

1. We've re-arranged the toolbars
2. We've muted the colors and "lines".

This is what we've also done:

1. Killed Silverlight
2. Killed WPF
3. Killed Winforms

Now we have no client front-end development strategy, but we have a nifty looking dev tool. We've strung along developers for 10 years, and it was a fool's errand.

Perhaps this is why Delphi has had such a large sales increase over the last year of 54%. At least the VCL has been consistent (and powerful) for 17 years. People like supported products.
