On Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2

Microsofts ever anticipated release of visual studio 2005 is long overdue. I startedformally the universitys student information system january this year with two possible options . First was the use of Visual Studio 2003 trial edition (good for 60 days) and the other was using the Visual Studio 2005 beta 1 Whidbey. Knowing the fact that VS2005 will be released soon , i ventured on the use of beta 1. It was reallya very bumpy ride, the application was a source hog, i need to upgrade my pc just to keep it running. It featured a nice interface and development tool though. It was all fine, having a good IDE , new controls , good debugging tools, crystal reports ..all the goodies a programmer might ask..then it expried!!!!

Well , we tried to expreriment on other options just to keep beta 1 alive but , unfortunately i was time to go... im almost through with the development!!!!

i downloaded beta 2 express edition , i dont have any MSDN subscription to download the standard beta 2.. the IDE improved , except taht there are something s that i can do in beta1 which i can no longer do in beta 2!!!!!! express edition!!!!!! at least i have made the ClickOnce technology work..yes it worked for christ sake!!

the school have the money , microsoft dont have the goody!!!!! i just hope it ll be out soon!!!
