I find 2012 to be tolerable now. Once I added the theme editor extension, removed the loud menus, and added a couple extensions that I've long been dependent of in VS2010. Basically, made 2012 act and feel a little more like 2010..

As mentioned, the SQL integration is convenient. The other little touches and improvements to intellisense are welcome. The bland icons with their afterthought colors I could live without but it's not nearly the nails on a chalkboard that the loud menus became for me. The icons aren't as lame when your not blasted with screenfuls of drab grays and white.

Once you get past the distraction of all the GUI changes made for their own agenda for our own benefit, I accept it as a fair toolbox upgrade for writing code for the next dead in 2-5 years technology. It has worked well for my projects so far and I've mitigated most of the my productivity killing distractions. I look forward

I still see it as change for the sake of change from the softies. The Windows, Office, Mobile teams all got drastic UI changes (for better or worse) so the VS team I'm sure was pressured to change.. Too bad that's the best they could come up with. VS2016 will just be the re-branded version of TouchDevelop.Cool | :cool:
