Whidbey is soooo cool...

Development, Whidbey Comments

... but I have to switch back to .NET 1.1 because of this bug issue:

VSCorePackage

I've already written about 2k lines, but this issue bars me from doing any UI development Dead Additionally, I don't want to wait another year before releasing this project.

However, while porting back, I've noticed how much Whidbey will easen the developer's life:

  • Anonymous delegates make your source code much clearer.
  • Generics allow you do write more, well, generic code.
  • System.Xml.XmlTextWriter/Reader 2.0 implement IDisposable.

.NET 1.1 is so... yesterday.

Update: I'm missing the System.Windows.Form.WebBrowser control, too.
