I have been using TODO comments in visual studio since vs 2003. It helps me keep track of all the items that I eventually want to get to but don't have the time to do it on time to meet my release date. You can access the todo list from the view menu and clicking Task List. One of problems I had in the past with todo list was, it only showed todo tasks for files that are opened in visual studio. In a big project, it is not feasible to open all the files to see all the the todo tasks for the entire solution. In vs 2008 service pack 1, C# IDE team finally got around to fixing this issue. Now you get todo list for all the todo tasks in your solution regardless if the file is open or not.
