Visual Studio 2013


(Former National 4A Champion) #1

Anybody excited for the new visual studio?


#2

Nope. I work in VS2010. My understanding is VS2013 is for Win8 only. I work in Win7 only. Thus, not excited.

On the other hand, I love resharper.

I could care less. What, they made it Windows 8 compatible? Because Windows 8 is soooo great…


#4

I can’t decide which I like more…windows 8, windows ME, or migraines…probably migraines but both OSes cause them and are about as useful as a migraine. Fact. :wink:


#5

MAVERICKS.

I’d probably switch entirely over to Ubuntu if I wasn’t a gamer. I’ve been using it for two days, and unlike Windows, it actually makes sense.


#7

I’d switch back to the Mac if my life wasn’t so deeply entwined in proprietary windows software and .net development. :frowning:


#8

I’m sure you know this, but for those that might not you can do as I do and run windows on Mac either emulated or multi-booting. In fact, Windows 7 runs better on my Macbook Pro than it does on my PC.

I’m not currently developing software with visual studio, but have in the past. 2007 was the last iteration I used.


#9

I realize this. My understanding is Win7 doesn’t handle the retna display particularly well. Also, I would only ever be booting into windows. I would never be using emulation. My last 10 computers were all macs. Now I live with a lenovo X1-C and just wish I could go back.

Actually, I use it in Win7. I use VS express, so no extensions sadly.


#11

I wish most games were compatible with non Windows OS…

I know right? Valve seems to think gaming will go Linux, so we should keep our fingers crossed. Hopefully that Steam OS will help too.


#13

Valve is going to release a console that runs on *nix, so that is definitely a step in the right direction.


#14

Yeah, Windows 7 is okay, could be better, but with the direction Microsoft is going with Windows 8, it is a good thing Linux is starting to become more than an obscure operating system only a few people use.
