  • This is just the most brilliant thing I've seen in quite a while. I wish all the servers were available this way.
  • Just what the doctor ordered. I think that VPC's should be a must have for any beta of software that takes more than 30 minutes of effort to install.
  • There are several positive comments in response to the VPC release of VSTS.
  • This is a great idea! So I tried to download it immediately. I tried it for hours yesterday and today. Of course a signed in successfully before trying the download. But on clicking the link in the subscribers download section, I receive a blank page. This behaviour is absolutely repeatable. So, a great idea and much frustration. Has anybody had a similar experience? Any hints how to work around the problems?
