VS2008 is the best version they ever came out with (IMHO) and for any projects I do in my private consulting practice it's still the "go to" environment. I develop mostly desktop and a few web-based applications with it. I'll drive the "wheels" off this one. The executables still run fine in the latest Windows environments and on the web. YMMV (your mileage may vary) but I'd rather not constantly be chasing a moving target. The client cares not what version tool I choose to use, their money spends just as well as it does if I chose to waste my money, time and effort upgrading the technology.

Straw Poll

Have you ever taught anyone to code?
"Teaching" can mean from start to finish, or simply just helping someone learning to code work through a coding issue (like helping with homework or being a support tutor)
And how did it go?
