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  Instead, I'm looking for your overall assessment of the release quality and ship readiness.

Thanks in advance for your time.
