A 1918 study – yes, over 100 years ago – by Harvard University, the Carnegie Foundation and Stanford Research Center, found that “85% of a person’s job success is a product of interpersonal (soft) skills and that only 15% of his success is the result of technical knowledge (hard skills).”
Does that still hold up today? It certainly feels right, give or take.
What is true is that many recruiters prefer candidates having all the desired soft skills while missing some of the required hard skills rather than vice-versa. Hard skills training is a lot easier than soft skills training.

Quick update - we're looking into hosting the UI of the start window within a document tab or tool window within the IDE as an option. So you can launch Visual Studio with the focused UI of the start window to get to your code initially, but if you are already within the IDE, then the same UI will show up in a non-modal way.

There hasn't been an update since then, but the ticket is still "under review".

It's the same guy that thought it was important to make VS2019 more easily themeable.

I wonder what moron at MS decided this was a good idea
This might be a trigger for some, but MS seems to put the lesser lights in charge (probably to reduce labor costs) of projects, which eliminates to wiser, more experienced minds that used to manage products and projects and lead software development.
My lead example of this is that 30 years ago, we had a WinForms designer in the VB IDE that worked beautifully. And so it did going forward through the advent of .NET and Visual Studio. Yet today's "brain trust" at MS says it is too hard to make a XAML designer work as well as the WinForms designer that was once written in assembler!
Maybe MS needs to hire adults and not wannabes to lead their product development and software development.
You mean like all the requests to bring back color coded source printing to match the color coding on the screen. Color coded source printing disappeared in VS 2012. I still want my source code color coded on the rare occasions I actually print it out.
I love the right click context menu on the vs icon if you add it to your toolbar shortcuts. It lists all my latest opened projects so its two clicks ( right , then left selection ) and I'm right where I want to be from OS to code.
