I remember a few years ago at a software quality conference in Portland telling people in the hallway after talks about these cool static code analysis tools we had, but then having to admit they were just internal. Fast forward to today, the news is talking about it, Beta/CTP bits are available, and the RTM release is just months away. :)

"Microsoft has tools that will be in Visual Studio 2005 to do static code analysis," he said. "It's a tremendous experience. The tools came from Microsoft Research and represent a great example of technology transfer."
