  1. Create a Ubiquitous .NET Client Application Development Model

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351412/create-a-ubiquitous-net-client-application-develop.html
    This vote is for developers who wish to see the idea of a ubiquitous .NET client application development model created by Microsoft and the Visual Studio team.

    A ubiquitous .NET client application development model is a model that is defined in .NET-based technologies and is able to run in a multitude of runtime environments -- both native-compiled (store-hosted) and web-hosted.

    A *very* rough image of the vision can be found here:

    The goal is to enable *one* .NET Client Application Project to…

      • GPGPU programming

        This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
        https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351212/gpgpu-programming.html
        It would be very beautiful if .Net supports GPGPU programming like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPGPU
        especially that know graphic accelerators are in every where from PCs to Phones to Tablets..

        • Enterprise Library as default framework

          This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
          https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351184/enterprise-library-as-default-framework.html
          I think include enterprise library as default framework will become handy as this will help for consistency. As my concern, I think most of development works now need dependency injection (unity), Logging tool and config tool. So why not put enterprise library as the first option

          • Please create a DGML visualizer control that can be incorporated into applications at runtime.

            It would be very nice to have a control for displaying DGML graphs at runtime for my application. I think it would make a greate UI element.

            • Add a IFormattable to the boolean type

              This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
              https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351201/add-a-iformattable-to-the-boolean-type.html
              It would be handy if I could provide a custom format when writing out boolean values.

              I propose this would look like this: "{0:String_If_True:String_If_False}".

              An example in C# would look like this:

              bool result = SomeBoolReturningFunction();
              Console.WriteLine("Result: {0:Success:Fail}", result);

              Same example in VB:

              Dim result as boolean = SomeBoolReturningFunction()
              Console.WriteLine("Result: {0:Success:Fail}", result)

                • Revise shameful MSDN sample code

                  This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
                  https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351435/revise-shameful-msdn-sample-code.html
                  In many cases MSDN sample code is shameful. Look at this: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/te15te69(v=vs.110).aspx

                  1. Bad resource usage
                  2. Bad TCP/socket code
                  3. Bad crypto
                  4. Bad error handling

                  This piece of code is representative for what is commonly found on MSDN. In particular all socket code seems to be done by, no disrespect, an intern. If you show such code samples to expert devs at Microsoft they will be ashamed that this code has been put out.

                  This is not good enough. I must…
