Recently I've been asking people I work with how the VS2005 SP1 beta is going.  I've gotten various responses but the most insightful one was a suggestion to ask my customers which is precisely what I'm doing. I'm really interested in hearing from you on this topic.  Some of the things I'm curious about are:

  • Have you installed it? If so, how'd it go?  If not, why not?
  • What improvements have you noticed?
  • Anything get worse? 
  • What would you recommend we do before shipping this release in the near future?

I'm not looking for specific bug reports...they belong on http://connect.microsoft.com.  Instead, I'm looking for your overall assessment of the release quality and ship readiness.

Thanks in advance for your time.
