The Moment I HATE Visual Studio
For the Record, I really like Visual Studio. Most days I LOVE Visual Studio.
But there is one moment that I use Visual Studio that I cannot fully describe the visceral loathing-and-hatred I have for Visual Studio.
The situation appears when I have installed some software that has not merged its help content into Visual Studio help system.
God forbid that at that moment you accidentally hit the F1 key. In such a case Visual Studio hangs as it merges the new help content into its help system. No Cancel. No Pause. No Stop. No "I Didn't Mean To Do That." No Prompt--"would you like to merge blah blah blah. This could take a few minutes."
Instead you see THIS...
There is nothing you can do to stop this short of a) killing Visual Studio using task manager or b) go get a burger.
On my old machine this merge operation could take as many as 20 minutes.
ARG... Microsoft...please fix this stupidty.
