I was holding an ArcCouncil meeting in St. Louis last week and one of the attendees expressed their frustration with the seemingly 43 places you have to go to download and use the Visual Studio "Orcas", the Silverlight tools and Expression Blend.

Wow, it has been quite a day here at MIX -- I hardly know where to begin.
