With the release of Visual Studio 2010 last week, my peers and I have been bombarded with a number of questions about the release. We were pretty before the launch showing Beta and RC1 bits, but now that it’s released and a reality, the flood gates have been opened.

A number of people together this list of VS resources for us to email to people, but I felt that it would also make sense to post it, so here it.
