Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 Installation

This morning i downloaded Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 and decided to give it a try. Download went smooth. Took about an hour to download team Suite. Extracted ISO file and installed it. The installation went very smooth as well. It had to restart my machine after finishing installation of .Net 4.0 Framework. And after that installation of Visual Studio took place. Over all installation experience was very good. It did not take any long and in between there were no errors or things like that.

Now came to fire up the IDE and see how it works. Lets just say that I am not very impressed.

  • There is no offline help available. So only option you have is online help.
  • This is a show stopper for me. The performance is just horrible. I did not create an project. I just moved my mouse from start page to top menu bar. The CPU usage spikes to 100% for no good reason. Well there may be some reason that Microsoft knows about. And its very consistent.

I am not sure if i want to keep this Beta 1 on my development if I can't even move my mouse.
