I am really keen to try VS2019.... (particularly WPF with .NET Core)
But, I really don't want to face the "you have to uninstall everything manually, it will only takes 753,567 hours of hard work, googling, registry hacking" problem....
They stress that it can work side by side with VS2017, i.e. they want to make it easy to use without impacting your system negatively..., but it's not very obvious if they intend the final release to be an easy update to the preview builds, or not.
Anyone has any idea on that?
Come to think of it, I'd like to try that at home and I might have HyperV installed on my home machine.. should check that out, I guess...
[EDIT | CLARIFICATION]
I am wondering if the update
from VS2019 preview 2 -> to VS2019 final release is gong to be problematic. Or not.
It's all about VS2019 itself.. not what I use it for...
And I asked because last time I tried.. (granted that might have been VS 8 or 11?), I had plenty of garbage preview framework left over and I was in installation / DLL hell for a while...
Also had problem with .NET Core 2 preview... There was some (preview) left over dependency I couldn't remove when upgrading to final release of .NET Core 2.0
or create a restore point/backup before installing...

Ever since almost a decade ago MS released a few VS previews with broken installs and told everyone to reload their OS I've refused to install any pre-release MS products. If they'd responded to community outrage by defenestrating the PMs involved from a 10th story window and released working uninstallers at the time I might've been willing to relent; but they didn't and at this point the bridge is a mass of radioactive rubble at the bottom of the river and the site is too poisoned to allow rebuilding for generations.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

The brain is the one example we have of truly intelligent computation
He must know people that I don't know.
But he's giving a straw-man argument.
No-one ever said that backpropagation mimics the brain (or if they did, they were misinformed).
Nothing we do in AI mimics the brain; none of the AI methodologies -- not even his Holy Grail neural networks, which a lot of poorly informed people have declared as mimicking the brain.
The brain works with what is easiest defined as "highly compressed and merged 3D movies with smells and other sensory records attached". We don't have anything of artifice that can even come close to processing brain-level quantities of such data feeds -- Hell, we don't even have data of that kind, let alone the capacity to process it!
So he's just talking the usual "what I'm doing is perfect, and what everyone who doesn't do what I'm doing is inferior!" bollocks.
