Nah, people are like dogs in this respect. They need a vertical surface.
Nikola Tesla is turning in his grave.
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.
It's almost as if he didn't make much effort to find that.
It's OK. Once you move out, you're safe.
How do you know it wasn't buckshot?
Sure, it was a shotgun *this* time. What about next time?
I like your condition: "sufficiently elevated"
What if it's not?
Depends on what you shoot at it with.
Shooting at the sky is bad. Falling bullets can kill.
Insiders have been the beta-testers for the past 6 months...
That doesn't mean it's finished yet...maybe it needs six months more.
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)
"We don't do pardons", followed by an appeal to patriotism (ie. if you don't agree with our decisions then you're a pinko commie)

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)
Drawn and quartered. Look up the definition. It is a long and drawn out process for execution.
It's almost as if you don't actually know anything that particular punishment.
Hint: There's a third element to it.
Wait for at least SP1. Let others be the beta testers.
