Visual Studio 2010 Pushed Back

Microsoft was hoping to welcome in the spring with a March 22 release of both Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4. Instead, the IDE will ship in warmer weather; it's been delayed by a "few weeks" due to some issues with performance and use of virtual memory.

Developers are a prickly bunch, and Microsoft is battling Java, Eclipse and a wealth of other development tools and architectures. Given that, it pays to get Visual Studio 2010 right.

The cool thing about this is just how honest and open Microsoft is about the state of the product, what it's doing and when it'll be done. I'm hearing the weather in April should be just right for a VS 2010 launch.
