Looks great! Is this only available for VS2008? I'm looking to make the jump from VS2005 in the next month or 2, I was just curious if you planned to support other VS IDEs?

But why layout of this application (colors, margin, icons...) looks the same like Notes application on the iPhone?

Not a bad idea for something VS should defintely have a part of the default install package. It is way too flashy for VS so a color scheme to make it just a scratch window would be great. Also very buggy and frequently hogs the cpu or crashes VS.

This was a bad deal from the start. Not only did the installation take FAR too long for the simple functionality offered (as well as a very small executable), but as soon as I tried to use it, the entire IDE closed without an error message. I waited through the equally long un-install, and will never look back.

Very good, in the past I've had to create a notes file and just added it to the solution/project but this is definitely something that i think should be in every development tool.

Be aware! I bought the Professional version. So far a big disappointment. All notes will be deleted, as soon as I close the Visual Studio 2010. No way to keep them for a further session. Very dissatisfying .

Makes visual studio unstable. No instal and more importantly uninstal instructions. Avoid at all cost.

To unistall you have to run the installer msi file again, you get an uninstall option. Author could be bothered to put in a simple 2 line usege instruction: 1) To install, open the setup.msi file; 2) To unistall run the setup.msi again and choose uninstall.
