VS2010 Launch Date Moved Back

The so long anticipated date of 22nd of March will be “moved back a few weeks”.

Visual Studio 2010, TFS 2010 and .NET 4.0 release will be postponed due to outstanding performance issues.

While I am happy that MS is taking VS perf issues so close to announce this huge change, it still messes up a lot of planning around that date. Let’s hope that VS2010 gets much better at the end.

In addition a VS2010 Release Candidate with Go Live license will be available in the middle of February.
