I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all the dedicated beta testers out there. Especially Whidbey and Yukon. If it weren't for you guys the rest of us would be in a world of pain (instead you are! :-P). You guys are so cool. I teeter back and forth between loving and hating Betas. I love taking a look at new stuff so that I can plan for it in my current projects. But sometimes I just don't have the time to spend (waste?) on Beta testing. Rick points out some of the things I happen to agree with when testing Microsoft Betas these days.
I tend to focus on how to do things in the current versions of stuff because that's how the bills are paid. I admit I'm not as cool, but the stakeholders think I am. ;-)
