Horrible. Worthless. Destructive.
All words used to describe Visual Studio 2005. If you’re currently coding up projects in Visual Studio 2003 and things are generally working out ok for you, stick with it. Do not upgrade to VS2005. It will take all of your existing, functioning, compiling projects and render them useless. The file formats are not backward compatible so everyone on your team would have to use VS2005 as well. Oh yeah, it installs MS SQL Server 2005! Last time I checked, I didn’t need a relational database to write C code. Idiocy. I used to think that MS Money 2005 was the worst application that we ever released. Nope. VS2005 takes the cake
