The Results Are In

For those of you who attended the dev lab last week at Microsoft, you'll recall I handed out a questionnaire asking you how you would spend $100 across our extensibility feature set. 

Well, the results are in!  Here is how you, our customer, decided how you would spend that money.  Note that some of the surveys went over budget (>$100) and some came in under budget (<$100) -- I normalized the results to $100 (hence the floats).
