Provide slipstreamed installation of Team Foundation Server
Provide a slipstreamed installation of Team Foundation Server which already includes Service Pack 1 updates or else follow a model for applying updates similar to Office 2010 whereby hotfixes, updates and service packs can simply be placed into an Updates folder and installed as part of the standard installation process.
We have developed a slipstreamed installation of TFS that will be in our quarterly update.
Seeing as TFS is such a pain to get set up correctly, why not provide a pre-configured VM that we can just drop onto our network. Better still, provide a couple: one optimised for small <10 teams, and another configured for huge teams

Thanks for the feedback, SharePointJunkie!
We do have this work on our backlog, and hope to get it worked in a future release / update.
