What next for Visual Studio? Microsoft's monster IDE can't please everyone and 64-bit will not solve legacy problems

Dealing with VS bloat

When you install VS you can choose what you want in it - there's no need to install everything you'll never need. So I frequently go back in and remove bits in-between projects.

It does seem to use load-on-demand for some tools but giving you the option of profiles with more fine-grained control for when you just need particular tools/languages would be nice.
