I have seen other people using it very well. (or at least, it looks to me like they are) I even attended classes on using OneNote.
I have tried on multiple occasions to make use of it, but it always ends up looking like a digital version of that one, single file drawer; full of all kinds of info that I think is either useful, or may be in the future. None of it really fitting together well enough to make up a combined file, so everything is either a folder with one piece of paper in it, or a stack of random papers crammed between two folders.
Money makes the world go round ... but documentation moves the money.
I use it for documentation. I have a suite of network automation tools and I use OneNote as a repository for each project from start to current. You can divide each project page into sections for troubleshooting, program purpose, change history, etc. I link in specific network folders for project files and documents. It is easy to navigate and search.
I've used it before at work and it has a lot of features. However isn't it tied to the Microsoft eco system? Does it exist outside of Windows? I'm a big Notepad++ user, but I also save a lot of notes in a TiddlyWiki for various projects. Anyone else explore TiddlyWiki? https://tiddlywiki.com/
I used to - but after losing data through broken cloud synch a few times, I've given up. I'm using text files and markup(with images) - with a python script that indexes the lot. At least I can validate it's being saved and grep across the detail if I need to do a word search.
My organization has dozens of small C# projects, compiled in every version of VS that has been published, and some have not been recompiled in a decade (not broken, don't fix it!). Unfortunately, as time marches on, the older code is less and less likely to compile successfully in newer versions of C#/VS. I'm looking at upgrading some of the programs to either VS 2019 or 2022.
Moving to VS 2022 provides a longer lifespan before it's sunsetted (01/13/2032), at which point I should be retired and it will no longer be my problem.
Is VS 2022 ready for usage, or does MS need to fix more things first?
We have been using it since the production release without any issues. You may have more issues moving to the new .net version than with VS itself. We are staying on .Net 4.8 with VS2022 for our desktop app, but we moved to .NET 6 for the Blazor app. No issues for us in either case.
We are staying on .Net 4.8 with VS2022 for our desktop app
The old applications are mostly desktop -- written in every version of .Net possible.
On the plus side, there is currently no listed end-date for .NET Framework 4.6.2, 4.7.x or 4.8. Current projects are all on 4.8, and I suspect all our older desktop applications will remain on 4.8 until they are rewritten, or until the end of time, whichever comes first (although "end of time" is more likely).
I assume others are facing the problem I am. How are you handling it?
I recently moved from VS2019 to VS2022 without any glitch.
Only one (very small) annoyance: if you keep both VS2019 and VS2022 installed, the solution file (.sln) is not automatically saved as a VS2022 solution and keeps opening in VS2019. You have to manually save it (Ctrl+S) to make it upgrade. Really small stuff.
