I read this headline three times before I figured out exactly how bad it needed an Oxford comma.

"Slow to impulse...and how long until we're in range?" "2 minutes 13 seconds captain, we're not going to make it" Oh yeah, BECAUSE YOU SLOWED DOWN TOO EARLY. Come on, Federation.

"They're out of range for the tractor beam" Then warp it the fuck up...come on, this is a solvable problem.

Are we talking "really wrong" wrong or "iPhone 4 doubles as an iPod touch for left-handed users" wrong?

I have another example here - how the hell was I supposed to figure this out? (that comment saves me HUGE amounts of time - very thankful José chimed in)

For example - which workloads are required for VS 2019? - I can't tell. The last update was for the RC. There is workload file support for Visual Studio...we would offer a command line to get the right bits installed - bits like that could use love.

What we have for SO devs is a PowerShell module that helps tell you what needs installing and getting it setup quickly...I'd like to see something similar for CoreFX/CLR. Right now "how to build" is (unintuitively, IMO) under the contributing guide:

Building it is doable. Updating the build when you need to again 2 months later is much harder because you have to go figure out the dependency delta and install X, Y and Z to get going again...and the errors generally aren't great at saying what's missing.

hmmm, I should file a lot of suggestions around this - for example when it shows 2GB of objects on an 8GB dump due to lots of things ready for GC...having some top-level summary of what 75% of that missing size is would be very helpful for a lot of people, I think.

I can add some use cases there then - it eliminates a lot of secrets for us, and yes helps bits for auditing compliance and 3 letters with a number things. For example, you can't have RBAC AD groups with SQL auth.

Unsure overall honestly (will be resuming email from vacation in the AM and get back to ya). Some fun things we hit are like an SPN typo taking down domain controllers from fallback pass-thru auth when SQL sessions expire...not sure what some of those situations look like now.

I agree - the cloud use case is one I don't see at all. For us and customers with AD though, there are some bits we need to figure out that work well today and don't have a clear successor path on Linux.

To contrast - I have no timeline on when or even if our production DC (public websites and Teams) will move off Windows. A series of constraints and requirements and hardware sharing means it just doesn't make sense. Plus: that's local dev due to Visual Studio being on Windows.

We are aiming at Linux and containers because they make sense for cloud deploys (many customers, many environment copies), appliances (the upgrade model is simpler), and PR test environments (quick get-a-URL to test changes). The exact tech? I don't care, because it'll change.

Please understand this. Preaching solutions as if apply to all situations and problems is not genuine.
