Visual Studio 2008 beta 2 released!

I just installed VS 2008. The first time
that I tried to install it, the installation failed. Apparantly the
image (3 gb!) was corrupted and therefore the installation had troubles
with the cabinet files of the Document Explorer. I downloaded it again
and now the installation went flawless.

Tonight I made my first application. I created an rss reader (bases
on Scott Guthrie’s code) which uses LINQ. I think that LINQ is one of
the most important new features of the .Net 3.5 framework. It is an
feature which uses SQL like statements. I saw an demo of it from Erik
Meijer on the dutch DevDays and I immediatly loved it.

Now the next step is to try and expand the rss reader with Silverlight….
