If you target Linux or iOS and have any interest in using the high-quality Visual Studio environment for your development, you might be interested in this survey. We target Linux servers for our backend and Windows clients as our primary frontends so direct support for building, deploying, and debugging Linux code would be quite handy. I'm sure this is true for many other game developers. Speak up and tell Microsoft in their survey.

Thank you.

Our development team still uses VS2008 for an IDE. Any opportunity to provide feedback about why the newer versions are completely unusable is nice.

I mean seriously, when an IDE forbids you from doing useful things (typing, scrolling the window to look at code) so it can do secondary things (rebuilding the database for convenient autocomplete of classes and templates that God himself would struggle to parse) it is a problem.

In 2015 Microsoft is taking .NET and Visual Studio Open Source and Cross-Platform

Microsoft is also releasing a new, full-featured version of Visual Studio 2013 that will be available at no cost to independent developers, students, small companies and others not making enterprise applications.

This could be a "game changer" not only for game developers, but for web developers in general

Well, they have released large parts of .NET open source. They will release VS2013+ for free-ish, but not open source afaik, and it'll still only run on Windows. You'll be able to target non-Windows platforms with it however.
