We're supposed to take ballistics advice from somebody who can't spell "lose"?

What if my newborn baby is out on the porch? Do I really want the neighbors randomly shooting birdshot up in the sky?

Birdshot landing in my picnic? Don't want that, either.

In fact I don't want birdshot landing anywhere near me. Something doesn't have to be deadly for me to not want the neighbors firing it at me.

So much for a new 'improved' version

I don't know if you were being negative or playful when you wrote this but with all major overhauls there's going to be bugs.

Sure, but... I expect an IDE crash to be more difficult than "compile my code then double-click a warning message".

(Yes, I did it three times with the same result)

I installed VS2015 on a spare machine for a laugh - I actually managed to get them to fix an ancient VS bug fixed by nagging them enough. The fix was in VS2015 and I wanted to see it with my own eyes.

It crashed and burned about once a minute for the entire time I tried it, no chance to save any work. So much for a new 'improved' version.

I only installed VS2013 a few months ago after it reached SP4. I'm not expecting VS2015 to be usable any time soon (I _would_ like to have my bug fixed though because it happens constantly...OTOH it's been bothering me since VC++ 6.0 so I'm almost used to it by now)
