The official source of product insight from the Visual Studio Engineering Team
It’s been 2 weeks since we released Visual Studio 2013 Preview, and we’d like to hear what you think about it. Let us know your impressions by taking the Visual Studio 2013 Preview survey.
We do these surveys with most of our releases, and they help us gain deep insights on how we are doing with core areas such as quality, reliability, performance and overall satisfaction.
In this survey, we’re also looking for your opinions on areas such as .NET compatibility, project/solution compatibility and theming. Your input will help us continue to improve Visual Studio. We greatly appreciate your feedback.

And yes, bring back VS 2010 theme and icons (as an optional addin, if you have to follow Metro design just because Julie Larson Green says so. And Sinofsky has left, if you haven't heard yet).
After a year with VS 2012, I'm still wasting time to find stuff on toolbars.

Flexera is per-seat, which is too expensive for us. We have one seat for our main product, but need a cheaper basic solution for most uses.

Bring back Setup and Deployment project as a choice.
The InstallShield product is very bad & is costing developers excessive time & money.
You are under-estimating the negative good-will this decision is generating. I can't even put into words how disappointed I am about being force to migrate my setup & deployment projects.
The tradition of Visual Studio has been to make some complicated things easier and therefore "within the reach" of the average developer. If WIX is such a great tool and if you're not going to put back Deployment projects, please give us a nice GUI front-end for creating WIX projects. This front-end should at the least have the same ability as the deployment project: specifying dependencies, registry/file changes, service installer (for Windows services), etc.
