I don't know how this one escaped my attention. In Whidbey, there is a new window that you can dock in your IDE. It is called “System Window” and you can find it under View -> Other Windows -> Command Windows -> System Window. Very cool! It's these kind of small things that make me very happy. Keep up the great work IDE team!

It looks like I won't have to make my own command prompt plugin for Visual Studio after all - this feature is included in Visual Studio 2005. Sweet! :) I'm currently downloading the Visual Studio 2005 Community Tech Preview from...

I just installed VS 2005 CTP, and I can't find the command line window that you're referring to. When I go to View -> Other Windows, there's a Command Window option, but it's not a menu. Maybe I was too selective in the features that I selected to install?

Interesting. Perhaps they removed it from this version (it wouldn't be the first time with Alpha software ;)). Anyone else out there download the CTP and not see this window? I didn't download the CTP because all the work I'm doing with Whidbey is on Longhorn (and mixing the CTP with Longhorn is not a good idea (unless you want to see pretty colors and explosions when you are writing code, of course )).

No luck on VS 2005 CTP. That sucks royal ass.

Sorry, guys. I guess I shot the gun a little bit. Maybe someone "in the know" could tell us.

Hi, I'm josh. I'm "in the know" since I was the QA lead on the Whidbey IDE team for the last two years. The system window feature should not be in the CTP drop. The feature was unfortunately cut a long time ago. I thought there was enough interest, which is why I created the following powertoy project in my spare time from some of the original concepts. Check it out and send some feedback.

I should note that the project is currently designed for VS 2003 and not the CTP.

Well, it's a bummer that it was cut. That was pretty exciting. However, the fact that you have a workspace for a system window that can run in VS 2003 is super cool. Installing now!

Thanks Josh!
