One of the very cool things about the VS 2005 Express Edition for us inside the big house is that users have the option to anonymously upload data about their install experience automatically…. The goal is the use this data to help the install experience get better.
Given that this is our first real experience with this kind of data we are having a bit of a challenge interpreting what the results really mean and I would like to (via a small sample) correlate that data with anecdotal reports. So, please drop a comment here and tell me about your VS 2005 Express install experience. Did you get it installed successfully? How many times did you have to restart the installer (and for what reasons) to get it installed?
