Do yourself a favor; install Visual Studio SP1 now

While this may be old news to some, we’ve had a few reports recently of bugs that were already fixed in Visual Studio Service Pack 1, so it appears that not everyone is running it.

We fixed over 30+ bugs ourselves in Managed Code Analysis, so if you haven’t installed it yet, set aside some time and install it now.

    It definitely made all of the IDE crashes go away for me. It was getting so bad that I was contemplating using Notepad for chunks of my app. The next version of VS is going to have to be rock-solid and smooth as silk to make me forget how much of a nightmare the last two releases can be when they start bogging down & misbehaving.

    Due to the changes in how we now develop Visual Studio, we are in a lot better state in vNext (Orcas) then we were in Visual Studio 2005.
