Why don’t you colorize this like that

I was forwarded this feedback today.  The introduction it came with says it all.  Keep the wins coming. 

I was on IM with an MVP today, and he mentioned he was on the VS 2005 Real World Users Usability Study. I thought you would like his comment, I think it is testament that we are moving in the right direction and that your group is doing a great job getting customers involved:

“Did I tell you I'm in a Visual Studio 2005 usability study? I just get to use the product (which kicks ass) and then complain about things I don’t like. I love being involved. It helps me know that VS is gonna be a better product. Oh did I tell you they implemented a feature I asked for? At the summit, I met some guys and said "why don’t you colorize this like that?", and they said "hmm..." and now , this new build I got, it's in there by default.” - Micheal

  1. Zealous developer says:

    "Kicks ass" is a great testimonial of moving in the right direction. Almost makes me want to say, "No s@#$". We’ll be able to judge ass kicking when the product is out. 🙂

  2. Michael’s been a great participant in the Real Users, Every Day study. I’ve loved his feedback on Whidbey, as have a ton of other people around the Developer Division. Actually, I’m still not sure that it’s actually called "Real Users, Every Day." I can never remember if there’s a comma or if "Every Day" is one word or two. Jeez Josh, now I have another topic I’ll need to blog about ;-).

  3. I was referring to the string colouring. I think the new default is maroon. I’m not actually sure — maybe it magically pulled in my colouring. Actually, my comments were a bit more livid, but like MSDN premium, comments are scrubbed first ;).
