      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.

        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.

          @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.
