I just noticed that the ServerSide has a good interview with Brian Harry who was a founding member of the CLR team.  He has some good thoughts on the history of the CLR and our core value adds… and Oh, yea, he talks about Team System as well ;-)

 

Brian Harry - Product Unit Manager for Visual Studio Team Foundation

Brian Harry talks about his experiences bulding the CLR, the problems that needed to be solved during its development and what needs to be done to broaden and evolve it. He discusses his role in Team Foundations, looks at the version control and build systems in Team System, and talks about what it was like to create Visual SourceSafe.
