I'm sure there will be many more posts (from me and others) but I wanted to get the good word out quickly that Visual Studio Beta 2 is now available for download! It's been a long haul but I'm really excited about what we've achieved. I'm confident it's ready for people to really pick up and use on a daily basis. But what really matters is to hear what you think...please let us hear from you!
