What kind of bug triage interview is that? Anyone can read the reports at PFC and go vote on them. The 2005 RC from september was actually much newer build than the RTM. And in parts less buggy! Guess the "partners" had some special issue or no time to test the RC so they went with the buggier and older version.

I've had no problems with VS2005 and projects including C#, HTML, and XML files. However, I never use those "designers" so maybe they are to blame...
