Once again Rob Caron has sent me on a quest.  This time it is to put together a Visual Studio factoid – a list of historical facts about VS, like

  • Why is the executable devenv.exe instead of visualstudio.exe?
  • Is the Visual Studio logo an infinity symbol or Mobius Strip. (i recall a hallway debate over this once, many years ago)
  • Did the Solution Explorer originally appear on the right-hand side of the shell or the left, and why?

Throw out some of your questions, and i’ll see what i can find out.
