Just downloaded the official release of Visual Studio 2010 and nearly fell of my chair, when I saw that the new download manager is a Java Applet. Is Microsoft going soft? Or are we starting to see vendors use the best technology for the job, rather than what company developed the technology. I would of loved to be a fly on the wall in the meeting when it was suggested! Good on Microsoft.
But I for one, think this is too little too late. Is this enough to make us migrate of off Subversion, NUnit or CruiseControl.NET? No but it might be able to fill a very small gap left by open source tools. But I will not be switching from any open source frameworks for Team Foundation Server 2010. We needed this about 5 years ago, why the U-Turn Microsoft? Probably because of the lack of Team System take up? Come on who do you know that uses MSUnit or Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC)?
