Windows Microsoft's Professional Developers Conference is expected to be a coming out party of sorts for the next version of Visual Studio, code-named Orcas. Primary among the new features in and new direction for Orcas will be advances in how the toolset handles data, sources said. Data becomes "cool" in Orcas, said a source familiar with Microsoft's strategy for Orcas.

"I've been using Visual Studio off and on over the years, some more than others. People knock Microsoft a lot for various things, but very few developers can deny that they have a great set of development tools."

the problem i have with microsoft tools, is that they made it by stealing people from other companies. years ago, microsoft C was trounced time and again by borland tools, so microsoft stole the main developers from borland, taking advantage of the great deal of money they had. they finally settle out of court, bu borland almost never recovered. so the problem with microsoft is the anthietic practices they allways do.

Lay off the pipe. Microsoft didn't "steal people". They offered them a job.

LOL. Give it a break.

Offering some one a better paying job is "stealing" someone ?

When you grow up and move out of your parents house you'll truly understand how this stuff works.

So then why is MS suing Google? They just offered him a job, in China.
Borland should have used the same line of thought MS is using with google.
