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.
I think everyone's complaints about Visual Studio 2012 are somewhat over the top. VS 2012 is fine and if the only thing people have to complain about are the lack of color and the capitalized headings than that is pretty small-time.
Maybe the complainers should all work with the tools in the Java world. Than they would have something to complain about...

I also wrote an Apple App to keep track of posts that I want to vote on. When forum voting gets turned back on, there are going to be 9 million plus user's want to buy my app. I love the smell of money all day long.

Well, I mean it might (true on any given day the Earth exists), but it is less likely than me getting into a three way with Selma Hayek & Natalie Portman for example, which is pretty remote, sadly.
This might be misconstrued that I'd prefer a three-way with Natalie Portman and Selma Hayek than for the world to continue. It's a close run thing, but on the whole I'd have to opt for the world not ending, though I'd prefer the win-win situation of the former happening and the latter not, in case you are in a position to arrange it.
FYI, the Maya Calender doesn't end tomorrow, it just moves to the next B'ak'tun. Nothing to see, nothing to worry about.

You're a programmer? Aren't you supposed to be working with facts and logic??
That of course is a non-sensical statement.
Just because one is a programmer it doesn't mean they are a Vulcan. Matter of fact I have never met a programmer that was a Vulcan. So at least anecdotal evidence would suggest that they all remain human.
Those however are the only "logical" beings that I know. Humans are not.

You do of course realize that "logic" is based on assumptions? And you are clear on what an assumption is?

By that statement one would also suppose that there would be a direct correlation between ones success at being a developer and ones success at relationships. Or ones success at managing finances. Or dealing with death. Or raising children. Or any number of things.
But there isn't.
I certainly know very good developers that have very strong spiritual convictions.
