      I gave my remaining 3 votes to this. My favorite VS was 2010, perfect balance of contrast and features. Some stability issues - yes, but I could live with those. Problem is that to build a good new interface, one has to be the same person that built the old one. Otherwise they will build something that works for them only, without taking into consideration the idea behind the old interface. Usually happens with new/junior hires. I think Modern UI (Metro) is a good example.

        No. Upper case was a dumb idea from the start. There is no need to reiterate with it.

          Are you from the team who also invented upper case menu in VS 2013?

            This idea would be super cool, but can you imagine code like If(:)?.;)?.o-) == null) {}. I vote no.

              @GeorgeMauer: This feature is coming in Visual Studio 2015. If I got it correctly, you should be able to do someObj?.Something(). I am not sure though, could be that it only works for return types, i.e. functions/properties.

                I don't think this will ever be implemented. The majority of C# developers actually like this obscure syntax. It makes them look cool. Also to prove C# is hard to learn and therefore need more pay. Even if they did it for AND, OR, there are many other cases which would need rework. If you prefer clarify over small code size, try VB.NET. With VS 2015 coming, it should become more on par with C# features - just another reason to switch.

                  I think it makes more sense to have syntax like "break for[1]", which means a second "for" (0-based index). This can expand to 10 nested loops, where you have all sorts of while/for/do mess, and will still work after refactoring. Compiler can throw an error, if the scope you are trying to reference is no longer available.

                    This was already implemented. Meet Visual Studio Community Edition. http://www.infoq.com/news/2014/11/VSC2013

                      @Anthony: An addition to your idea, also allow multiple statements there, i.e. With x As New Cheese, y As New Toast, or the first one being With x = Fridge(GetProduct("cheese")), with optional "As clause" (depending on Option Infer) then being possible to do y.Add(x) inside the With statement. It is very common for us to have several lines of assignments, where a goes to b in a certain format.

                      @Anthony: I would like to see this new syntax. Also consider an alternative (you can implement both) - "Return .", also make it possible to assign a with variable, such as Dim a As ClassName = . Should be possible to use inside the Immediate window as well, i.e. ?. would print the "with" variable of the current scope.

                          There are a wide variety of reasons that debugging can be slow which makes this particular item not directly actionable as it is too broad. Please read the following blog post which outlines various reasons debugging can be slow and provides links to more specific UserVoice items that are actionable (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2015/03/03/make-debugging-faster-with-visual-studio.aspx).  If you encounter something that doesn’t have an existing UserVoice item please create a new one that is focused on a specific feature area for the debugger

                            Thanks to everyone who voted and commented on this issue. Visual Studio 2013 has added color in several broad reaching icon categories. We classified the icons we focused on into three sets: icons which represent common actions, icons which indicate code hierarchy, and icons that provide some kind of notification. By utilizing a systematic and broadly applicable approach to color use we are better able to effectively convey critical meaning or affiliation through color, to attract attention through color, and to improve scan-ability through color. This approach translates into color being applied to ~80% of standard toolbar and debug toolbar icons, ~75% of code hierarchy icons, and 100% of active notifications.

                            Based upon the design goals outlined above and design decisions reflected in the existing scheme for each of the core icon sets we will continue to apply and extend our approach to icon colorization as we move forward. As…

                            I want those nice old icons from 2010, without the need to hack and slash into 2012 internals.

                              We have read all of the comments on this thread and I’d like to thank you for providing your constructive feedback on this issue. Instead of merely repeating our support and migration guidance that has been laid out on http://msdn.com/vbrun, I’d like to address some of your specific comments here.

                              To play back the feedback themes we’re hearing:
                              - VB6 is awesome
                              - VB6 needs to be brought forward and maintained: in a new release or OSS

                              VB6 was and still is without a doubt awesome. VB6 made developers incredibly productive building a breadth of applications and as a result we have a wealth of applications and passionate developers to this day in 2014. One way I see our mission in developer tools is to empower developers to solve problems. This includes both today’s problems AND the problems of tomorrow. VB6, as you all have stated repeatedly in this…

                                Not an issue for most users, so better spend your effort somewhere else.
                                For solution, learn English. Or create your own framework to support multiple languages.

                                  We will certianly continue to maintain the product. Today we released Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Desktop which demonstrates our continued support for Windows Forms. Please continue to report bugs on Connect (http://connect.microsoft.com/visualstudio). Individual issues are evaluated carefully – we consider many aspects of the change including the cost, implications, and number of requests.We are closing this issue so you can have your votes back. Thanks for your feedback!

                                      VS needs to support x64 build/debugging. With same functionality as in x32, including edit and continue.

                                        Good thoughts, but not a deal breaker. Simple solution - get 16GB of memory. It would be under 100$ for a pack. You are paying $17K+ for a Visual Studio Ultimate license and cannot afford 100$ for a memory upgrade? For reference, here is a price proof link: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msca/en_CA/pdp/productID.254742100

                                          Changed the title to clarify that this is Visual Studio startup/shutdown.

                                          VS 2010 is slow to load and unload, even on my Vertex 2 SSD, 16GB of memory and i7-2600. And yes, for this kind of hardware 5 seconds is considered slow.

                                            Metro sucks. Period. Bring back VS 2010 theme.
