Surprise reversal!

No-cost Windows 8 desktop development returns with Express for Desktop

Nice!

VS is a great IDE. I'm using Eclipse and MonoDevelop now, but still use VS when I "need to get something done fast".

According to this blog post, the new VS comes with native Unit testing support for all VS editions. The post is not so clear about if this is also true for Code Coverage though.

Interesting tidbit here:

Coming Soon!

We’ve announced two things that will arrive in a few months:

    An update that will enable targeting Windows XP

Isn't Windows XP the IE6 of operating systems at this point?

Not really, imho.

While XP is definitely a bit long in the tooth, it's still a well functioning operating system - not nearly the holding-back-progress showstopper deadbeat massively-exploited and standards-violating P.O.S that IE6 is :)

That was unnecessarily kind to IE6.  >:(

Hmm, talk about feature bloat! A Point Of Sale system integrated with a browser? No wonder it was a pig!!  :Thmbsup:
