No Fun Intended Shoo! You are debugging the crap outta me!
I have been having some discussions lately about what the adoption rate of 2.0 will be. Some think it will be as good as the transition from 1.0 to 1.1. Others think it will be as slow as the initial adoption of 1.0. The results probably lie somewhere in the middle. I do not think the adoption rate will be as high as the 1.0 -> 1.1 rate for the simple reason of cost. When upgrading from 1.0 to 1.1, the cost was not an issue. The upgrade for MSDN Universal was $39 I think. However, newly in the mix we have the Express editions of Visual Studio. That should help speed things along and will probably be used by more than just the hobbyists. At the same time, I think it will be much quicker than the 1.0 adoption rate. A lot of the people now using 1.x were initially using VB 6 or something similar. The transition was especially tough for these programmers. I know because I was one. Not anymore. Give me C# or give me death. I wandered off topic there for a second. Anyway, the only poll that I have seen so far forecasting the adoption rate was at CodeProject. Can anyone point me to another?
