Windows "Today at the JP Morgan Technology, Media & Telecom Conference in Boston, Tami Reller shared with the audience that the update previously referred to as 'Windows Blue' will be called Windows 8.1 and will be a free update to Windows 8 for consumers through the Windows Store." They really didn't have much of a choice, but good news anyway.

I'd love for them to move to a yearly release cycle with Visual Studio with an option to purchase a subscription to the steady stream of updates.

I really, really like the Office 365 business model, it works well for software that costs hundreds of dollars.

And there's always Visual Studio Express if you can stand not having R#

R#?!

Edit: Ah you mean Reshaper. We don't get it for our projects anyway. ;)

It is hard to convince customers that they also need to pay extra for functionality that Java IDEs offer out of the box, when it is not project related.
