Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Clause (or rather: We DO Listen)
I highly encourage anyone playing with the Whidbey bits to take some time, register in the MSDN Product Feedback Center (a.k.a. LadyBug) and start submitting feedback. Based on my experience I can tell you that you won’t be wasting your time and you are going to get a reply to your submission, it may take a little while, but most likely you will get a response.
Yes, as I said before “it may take a little while” to get a final response, in this particular case it was “only” 56 days, but it was definitively worth the wait! (in case you haven’t noticed already, yes I’m happy!).
So, if you are not already registered in LadyBug, don’t wait any longer, register now and make yourself heard!!
And when you’re coding in ASP.NET 2.0 and store an Unit type into viewstate, remember… you’re saving 31 bytes thanks to me :-P
