Former Visual Studio developer Chris Granger:
Despite the dramatic shift toward simplification in software interfaces, the world of development tools continues to shrink our workspace with feature after feature in every release. Even with all of these things at our disposal, we're stuck in a world of files and forced organization - why are we still looking all over the place for the things we need when we're coding? Why is everything just static text?
Even if this idea doesn't seem feasible, just the thought of real innovation in this space is exciting.
