Yeah it does! I’ve been pair programming in Notepad for most of the week with Roshan (Dude needs to get a blog!). And what have we been programming? Well, remember the spaghetti stuff before ASP.NET? What was it called again? O, Yeah ASP, or classic ASP these days. Not only that we had to do some funky ADO stuff, in notepad, with no intellisense. So we had one laptop with Google open, and one of us searching for stuff we had forgotten existed 10 years ago, and the other coding in Notepad. What an adventure, we were laughing most of the time at how incredibly lucky we are these days with .NET and VS.NET.
Any case, I am soooo glad it is 2008 and not 1995!
