We want a better Visual Studio 2005 - Developers it's time to vote
Call to Developers, Developers, Developers:
It seems that an official petition (I still don't like the word but what else can I use) for a VS 2005 Beta 3 exist.
Clint Stotesbery has posted the request on the Feedback Center. Of course I voted and I encourage anyone to do the same!
We need to show to Microsoft that we want not only a good product but something built in respect with all the good faith and energy we put in our projects since three years. In one word we want o be proud of .Net 2.0!

There are still way too many bugs and performance issues. Too many issues get resolved as Postponed. A lot of changes are happenning in the CTPs. I'm guessing not many people are using the CTPs compared to beta 2. Most developers don't have time to play around with a CTP that doesn't have a Go Live license. I'd rather have a good product 6 months from now than a mediocre one in 3 months.
|Proposed Solution: || |
Put out a Beta 3 release at the end of September with a Go Live license for VS Team Suite, VS Standard/Pro, TFS, etc. Push back RTM if you have to. RTM December 31st or push it to 2006 (just keep the 2005 name then, no big deal).
Yes, people will complain about changing release dates but it isn't like this will be the first time. Developers won't care about when the RTM date was a few months after RTM if the product is full of bugs.
