Biggest speedbump for me is that while the beancounters have bought an MSDN subscription, getting them to buy new versions of Re#er is a royal PITA. The version I have supports up to vs2012; but with that being a v1.0 for the new UI there wasn't much (read any) interest in upgrading to it.

I've played with VS2015; but the preview releases aren't licensed for production, so anyone using one of them *should* also be using an older one.

I've also got a handful of legacy apps still on VS03. For one the newest version is in VS2010; but a 3rd party UI component not working with .net 2.0 (or later) means I need to keep 03 around to do regression testing. The other I'm in the process of trying to upgrade to 2010; current status is Works on My Machine Sigh | :sigh: on the production box it's failing. I suspect the problem has to due with that box having locked down security permissions and .net 2+ replacing a single knob that can be turned to trust everything with a finer grained permission system, but need to do more investigation to be sure.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
