Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 Cheat Sheet


 


Hey folks, Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 is now available for the world to download and here’s your cheat sheet of links you’ll want to know about



Top Two Installation Questions 


Q. Will it work side-by-side with VS 2008? 
A:
Yes, Visual Studio 2010 will work side-by-side with VS 2008


Q: Will it work on Windows 7?
A: While installing on Windows 7 Beta is not a recommended scenario, installing on Windows 7 RC is a tested scenario.


 


One thing to remember is that VS 2010 is not feature complete and hasn’t been optimized for performance. While the move to a WPF-based editor is pretty sweet, there are some scenarios where you may feel a little bit of latency with your commands.  You’ll see perf improvements on this over time.

  23. Leo R says:

    It doesnt look nice to have so many versions of MS framework, it wouldnt be nice to have to install the 4 versions of it (’cause they dont have backwards compatibility) if I have 4 apps developed with each.

    Id prefer to have just one updatable framework, just as java does.

  24. Sheng says:

    vs 2008 is not very good for support xaml.

    Wish 2010 works better. But I won’t try the beta version.
