    as sheldon cooper said for windows 7:
    “My new computer came with Windows 7.
    Windows7 is much more user-friendly than Windows Vista.
    I don’t like that.”

    Is it just me that’s really disappointed in how VS2012 has been hit with the ugly stick like W8 has?

    Seems that MS has finally decided that it can’t actually have a single product that isn’t ruined anymore (previous VS versions didn’t follow the ridiculous Windows styling decisions (as much)). Next we’ll get a ribbon-style toolbar too. Oh well, sticking with VS2010/W7.

    Ditto, and to take it a bit further I am now looking to use Codeblocks or someother IDE and looking to use Linux(Mint) or some distro and emulate my games in Linux if possible. I can’t stand Win8 and I love Win7. The new IDE rules with VC++2011 you have to buy $500 version just to code non Metro apps, if you use express you can only code Metro crap….

    “if you use express you can only code Metro crap”
