GeneralVisual Studio 2017+ Offline Install Pin

If you want to do this, the install files require almost 50GB of drive space. Even when compressed (with 7ZIP), the files required FIVE 8gb DVDs!

It seems to me that they're trying to cram 10 pounds of crap into a 5-pound sock. I think it would be more convenient if they created an ISO for the basic Visual Studio, and created additional ISOs for all the crap that not everybody needs, such as game dev, .net core, and cloud dev. There are better ways to distribute this app.

Of course, that's just me.
