Somehow I just can't come to terms with the new UI. [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/sad.png[/img]

I mean, Microsoft has never been about visual design but this is just bad, MENU BAR, Y U SCREAM AT ME!?...

Guess I'll just have to adapt, will give it a few more tries.

The caps menu's don't bother me but then again people using all caps while text chatting never bothered me either but some people can't stand it.

As for the eclipse shots, it is true that eclipse has a few more options for syntax highlighting. I actually think that eclipse is the most feature complete IDE in existence but it doesn't get as popular as some of the others because it's a biznich to setup and keep working. I recently gave it another try and had nothing but one weird issue after another with it and even when it works it's slow. If they could fix that, they'd have the best IDE with QT Creator and VS2012.

Until then I'm sticking with VS2012 for windows only apps, and QT creator as my main IDE for everything else including cross platform and GUI apps which QT excels at. Edited by EddieV223

I was asked for my color theme in a private message, and since I can't figure out how to attach files (is it even possible?) I figured here is the next best spot.

The thread is more than a month old, I know, but I figured it's young anough to be brought back up:

The first update for VS2012 has been released, and .... (drum roll) ... it "enable(s) C++ applications to target Windows XP from Visual Studio 2012". Get it while it's hot: [url="http://blogs.msdn.com/b/somasegar/archive/2012/11/26/visual-studio-2012-update-1-now-available.aspx"]http://blogs.msdn.com/b/somasegar/archive/2012/11/26/visual-studio-2012-update-1-now-available.aspx[/url]


One question left: does this update work for the express version? I have the professional version installed so I can't test, but I'd still like to know, so I can tell others.... Anybody?
