I just ran across a blog entry from David Hunter, who has been playing around with the PDC build of Whidbey. David was trying to create a web service after reading about Indigo, but discovered that his New Project menu item had completely disappeared! It was only after a lot of hunting and poking around that he discovered our cool new Import/Export Settings feature, which tailors Whidbey for different sets of users. When he had first installed Whidbey, he had selected the Web Developer settings file without giving the other options a second thought. Resetting the IDE solved his problem, but as he put it: “this amount of specialization caught me by surprise.”

Hmm, food for thought for the group I work on. Has anyone else run into this problem?
