In my opinion, Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4 are the first time since Visual Studio 2005 and .NET 2.0 that I feel that the platform and development tools are 100% aligned. Visual Studio 2008 was good, but it had poor support for a lot of .NET 3.X technologies, and there were so many interim items released without the appropriate took upgrades.
I'm very impressed with the overall combination of technologies and tools and the overall improvements to Visual Studio. What do you think of the new tools?
