If I have one blogger I respect regarding his honesty, it’s surely Roy Osherove. When Roy get troubles with VS2005, you are surely talking about serious issues. And when you know Roy is an MVP, where are we going?
So this is really alarming, because others here like Frans Bouma have expressed concerns about the number of bugs in the IDE. So it seems that the framework is ready but not the tool!
This make me think about the quest for another Beta launched a couple of months ago, and maybe it was not that wrong after all to claim for another round of tests.
Now I am also jumping on the .NET 2.0 bandwagon, but I am not sure after all if I am not going to wait until a Service Pack. After all my current dozens of projects are working fine, my user group website is doing quite well under .Net 1.1, and yes maybe I can afford to miss for a while some fancy new features.
It’s seriously time for Microsoft to be even more transparent on the subject, and give to everybody now a clear roadmap on their service pack policy.
I know guys you ahave your eyes on the big launch but keep your developers happy!
