I have been using it for a while now... I really like it -- though I guess I am kind of an IDE snob because I happen to hate the VS IDE (at least as an code editor -- we don't get along. My indention style is different and its code completion sucks and well... I suppose that if that is all you have ever known it is great -- but I am just not MSVS-compatible.

I've been using it. It feels much better than the previous version to me. Not sure how big the differences are but I'm interacting much more intuitively. I really like the small feedback app included because it makes it genuinely easy to tell them what I like and what I hate as I find something I'd like to report back.

Try a different browser? Definitely didn't like Chrome for me.

Maybe it's just me, but overall, the UI seems sloppy. It's like there should be things there and aren't. Also, I don't know what microsoft was getting at, but I absolutely hate the new file menu that opens up covering the entire document. I don't want my menus to do that. Make that a start page like in Visual Studio or something, but don't make file become that. It's annoying and displays too much information - not to mention that it's U.G.L.Y! Ugly!

I'd send a frown, but unfortunately, I don't think microsoft needs to know the file locations of all my running processes. Seriously.
