General Development "Today at TechEd, I announced Visual Studio 2013 and Team Foundation Server 2013 and many of the Application Lifecycle Management features that they include. [...] I will not, in this post, be talking about many of the new VS 2013 features that are unrelated to the Application Lifecycle workflows. Stay tuned for more about the rest of the VS 2013 capabilities at the Build conference."

In your part of the world there may be many possibilities to get it for nothing. Not where I am at.

However, half assing it doesn't even begin to justify the upgrade mill MS is now pushing devs into. Upgrades also cost devs the effort and going through a new series of bugs. Things that were working in VS2010 borked in VS2012. How about the C++11 support they promised? What the point in rushing into a new VS?(probably more Metro goodness than before)

I am pretty pissed off with that one, specially since it was repeated multiple times by several Microsoft key persons.

So now they come and state update 3 is the last one, and it was mostly about UI and TFS related fixes?!

And when the head of Visual Studio development blogs about 2013, it mentions mostly ALM and devops tooling?!

I wonder if the going native stuff was driven by Steven Sinofsky and now that he is gone, company politics moved elsewhere.
