Some shameless self promotion... A while ago I agreed to barge into Visual Studio team member offices with Scoble. Well, we did it and the results are live on channel9. Personally, as I suggest in the video, Robert likes barging into offices unannounced almost as much as I like seeing their reactions. We made a good team. I also filmed a small segment to demonstrate some of the cooler community supported tools that work well with VS.
Also a bit of adviceVia: http://blogs.msdn.com/vs2005news/archive/2005/01/13/352406.aspx
Over at Channel9 they have recently posted a two part tour with members of the "VS Core Team". They are a little lengthy, but Chris has posted some good advice for those of you looking for the juicy parts.
