My good friend, Clint Edmonson, sent me a link to an article about the Debugger Canvas recently (http://blog.agafonov.net.ua/post/2011/06/14/Debugger-canvas.aspx). It’s an add-in for Visual Studio that is our version of Code Bubbles. I actually read about this idea last year and really, really liked the concept. For those more academically oriented here is a link to the paper introducing the idea entitled “Code Bubbles: Rethinking the User Interface Paradigm of Integrated Development Environments”:
I think the idea absolutely has merit. But that begs the question: WHAT exactly IS the idea? This video will tell you everything you need to know about the most awesome Debugger Canvas:

Hey Bob :)
That's a problem with the old Tips and Tricks extension. I'll most likely get a new one done but, for now, I won't be supporting the old one going forward. Uninstall it and I will make an announcement when a new one is available.
I kinda liked it for a second, but you don't get the same inspection intellisense when hovering over variables and such while debugging. You have to specifically do a quickwatch to get that info. No likes.
Yeah I agree Will there are defintiely some missing pieces. My understanding is this is pre-pre-pre-Beta and I suspect they are going to implement more features into it to bring it on par with the current experience eventually.
