That's pretty nice. Have you downloaded it yet?

I've always found Visual Studio to be way too bloated to run smoothly, so a beta probably won't agree too well with my computer.

I have downloaded and it's great! :)

It is, however, HUGE! (11g I think)

After partitioning my hard drive to allow me to dual boot linux, I only have 12GB left. Stupid 111GB hard drive :crazy:

Oh well, no awesome software for me :(

It only runs on Windows 7 RC Ultimate and no other versions of 7? Really? Common now...

Well obviously... They want people to test the RC, developers shouldn't be testing their apps on the beta. RC was latest at the time of release.

But shouldn't a beta be tested on all platforms, especially those that developers are using the most like XP?

Test a Windows 7 Development Environment on an OS that's no longer supported.. Great plan.

I'm just installing VS2010 Beta 2 now, Beta 1 looked amazing - But the IDE was extremely sluggish at least for me when editing code, what with random crashes every now and then too.

Might write something up about Beta 2 once I've had a bit of time to test it. I had a look around for a review that actually focussed on if stuff was fixed from Beta 1 in Beta 2 and found nothing... Wouldn't be installing it if someone said it was crap.. :(
