This is the first thing I’ve got from the early pages of the book Moving to Visual Studio 2010 which looks very interesting to read:
There are numerous reasons to move to Visual Studio 2010 Professional,
but it would be goot do list a few from a high level perspective:
- Built-in tools for Windows 7, includign multi-touch and “ribbon” UI components.
- Rich new editor built in WPF that you can highly customize to suit how you work.
- Multi-monitor support
- New Quick Search helping to find relevant results just by quickly typing the first few letters of any method, class, or property.
- Great support for developing and deploying Microsoft Office 2010, SharePoint 2010 and Windows Azure application.
- Multicore development support allows you to parallelize your applications, and a mew specialized debugger to help you track the tasks and threads.
- Multi-targetting/multi-framework support
