Wow... that was fast.. Anyway, if you have an MSDN subscription, it's time to head on over to the MSDN Subscription page to download it now.

If you're a student or hobbyist developer run and download the Visual Studio 2008 Express Editions now!

One good point about VS2008 is that it's supposedly about to target .Net Framework 2.0, 3.0(*sic*) and 3.5 That's great, because as much as I want to use the new IDE, I still have projects ongoing on .Net 2.0, unfortunately since I'm in the middle of a project right now I'll only be able to upgrade my main development machine later.

The U1010 on the other hand... is highly anticipating an installation of Visual Web Developer 2008 Express!

But obviously I'm not bringing the eeePC to work, I plan to let my parents use it to get on the net and communicate with their friends. The included Xanadros Linux OS might be strange and intimidating to an experience Windows user, but for someone who hasn't touched a PC before it feels almost close to an appliance like interface.

Performance is acceptable for the price I paid for it, RM1299. It's cheaper than most smartphones! I'm spending some time with it to have a proper feel for it's Linux platform. But after using it for half a day I'm really thankful for the things we take for granted in Windows. I'll elaborate more on this after I collect my thoughts.

Well, the security company came and went without much of a problem. So I guess I survived my first code review pretty well with no major problems reported.

Experience, and of course this book (absolute must read for ANY programmer) helped ensure that our code was pretty tight (yes it wasn't perfect, but we did very good).

Best quote from a member of the review team.

Generally .Net code has fewer security problems.

I know a few people who would love to have you make that an official statement. ;)

It has become apparent that the only way to make WZ sit quietly in a chair is to feed him. And once you start feeding him, you better not stop till he's satisfied!
