            I’m going to mark this as completed. Even though the feature we ended up implementing didn’t do exactly as requested here.

            Instead we added exception filters to C# in the CTP of Visual Studio “14”. They provide an easy solution for this scenario, and addresses the core issue raised by many, namely what is the type of e.

            For this scenario you’d use it like this:

            try { … }
            catch(Exception e) if (e is RemoteException || e is NamingException || e is CreateException)
            {

            }

            You can find links to the CTP and more info about the upcoming C# language features at this CodePlex post:
            https://roslyn.codeplex.com/discussions/552378

            Thanks for the great ideas and discussion!

                With the December 10th deployment, we have released our first phase of our rollout plan to deliver process customization to Visual Studio Team Services. You can now add your own fields, and change the layout of the work item form.

                We’ll continue marching down our backlog and add more customizations until we reach full parity with what we have in TFS. This is going to take some time and you can read more about our plans in this blog post: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2016/01/11/process-customization-futures.aspx.

                        Updated Status: 7/2/2013

                        Thanks to everyone who voted and commented on this issue. Visual Studio 2013 has increased color and contrast use within the user interface while continuing to focus on giving the content you are creating and editing visual prominence. We’ve utilized the feedback you gave us to help refine our approach to color and contrast within three main areas: 1) we added color to icons and reduced line weights to improve icon scan-ability and to better communicate icon meaning and categorization; 2) we added line work and raised contrast levels to increase visual separation between screen regions; 3) we included a built-in “Blue” theme option at product first launch to better support user choice.

                        In keeping with these three areas we have made many changes to the Visual Studio 2013 built-in themes. In high utilization and icon intensive areas of the product, such as common toolbar actions and…

                        Hossein AarabiHossein Aarabi commented  · 

                        I am hoping that MS will provide the option to change the theme. I am ok if the default is monochrome, as long as there is an option to add custom themes.

                        When the screen technology has advanced to the point to show vibrant colors, why not use colors?

                        Hossein AarabiHossein Aarabi commented  · 

                        At least make it optional with or without color, or create a no-color theme. This way both side are happy :)

                        Personally, I am for a metro style theme. Having colors does not really matter to me.

                              An update on this front: we’re starting work here. It’s a thorny problem, but this demo from our recent Connect event shows some of the work we’re doing in this area:
                              https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Visual-Studio/Connect-event-2015/010/player#time=0h26m22s

                              We want to make installing Visual Studio a much quicker experience, where you can get up and running quickly with the core components you need. As we grow Visual Studio to support more and more scenarios, it inevitably gets bigger and more complex – but as the demo shows, we have some ideas on how we can rein this in while continuing to enable new workloads.

                              I belive this is planned by MS, according to MS comment on a similar request.

                              No edit functionality? hmmm

                                We’re investigating this. Not so sure about a Task Manager feature itself, but we recognize the need to provide better telemetry to extension authors, to harden Visual Studio itself against errant extensions, and to make it easier for users to troubleshoot problematic extensions.

                                See the idea for more detail…

                                  As part of the process customization modernization effort, we’ll be bringing all the new value you’ve seen on Visual Studio Team Services to next version of Team Foundation Server as well. Existing customers will not be forced onto the new customization stack as part of upgrade. In the next version of Team Foundation Server you can choose whether you want to keep using the existing functionality with witadmin and xml editing, or you will have the opportunity to use the new functionality with process inheritance and WYSIWYG editing in the web. The new functionality is available in new collections or after migrating existing collections after upgrade.

                                    You can use git-tfs to implement DVCS in your environment. TFS would be your central source control repository, while git would be your DVCS. The product does work well. But, I still think it would be nice if TFS enabled this option out of the box :)

                                      Thank you to all who provided ideas and votes on this topic. We used that data to help prioritize the improvements in Visual Studio 2012 and have been continuing this work with the VS 2013 release.

                                      As Visual Studio 2013 Preview has now shipped, we’d like to close this item to give your votes back to use on specific topics. Our Visual Studio performance team will continue working to improve performance at an ongoing basis. However, we are closing down this general idea, so that you can use your votes on more specific performance topics, and help us focus our team’s investments. When you have performance related suggestions, please create or vote on specific Perf ideas here: http://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/121579-visual-studio/category/52115-performance

                                      Please use Visual Studio 2013 Preview (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=306566) and continue your feedback and votes– we highly value your feedback.

                                      I have a suggestion:

                                      Some VS addon cause VS performance to degrade. Is it possible to provide a task manager or something like that will pin-point which addon is causing the performance problems? (May be similar to how IE 9 detects an addon is causing the browser to load slowly)

                                        Hello everyone and thank you for the feedback and for voting on this issue. We understand that this can be a frustrating issue, however, fixing it requires a large and complicated architectural change across different products and features including Visual Studio, TFS, MSBuild and the .NET Framework. Dedicating resources to this work item would come at the expense of many other features and innovation. Additionally, if we removed this limitation from our first party tools it will still likely exist elsewhere in Visual Studio’s ecosystem of extensions and tools. For these reasons, we are declining this suggestion and returning return everyone’s votes so they can be applied to other items. In the interest of delivering the most value to our customers we sometimes have to make very difficult cuts, and this is one of them.

                                        Thank you,

                                        Will Buik,
                                        Visual Studio – Project and Build Team

                                        In my opinion, this is a must. Over the years this has cause many issues for me.

                                          Thanks for your great suggestion. In an ideal world with unlimited capacity, we would have implemented every single piece of customer feedback. However we live in reality and we need to make tough decisions, including the decision to focus on areas that make the most impact. The voting system in User Voice is a great platform to measure which improvements make the most impact. We also want to be open and transparent with you that this suggestion will not be part of the next release. We will keep the suggestion on our own backlogs, and archive it in User Voice. This gives back your votes so you can use it on other suggestions and tell us what other improvements will have the most impact in your daily life using TFS/VSO.

                                          Read more how we use User Voice to listen to customers in this blog post http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2015/10/08/how-we-use-user-voice-to-make-a-better-product.aspx
