I would like to be able to pay to get just the features I want
There's several different editions of Visual Studio offering an increasing amount of functionality and integration, but it is not possible (ATM) to get a basic product with a couple of the interesting features of the full Ultimate/Team Suite.
If my departmental (or personal) budget can't stretch to the Ultimate edition, some mechanism to let me get the bits I need the most would be greatly appreciated. For example, having a number of licenses of VS 2010 Professional ($799 each) already, I can't justify forking out for Premium ($5469 each) just to get Unit Testing, so we went with nUnit and PartCover instead.
It seems that some more flexible model is required so that we can pick-n-mix the features we need for the price we can afford. Looking over the feature comparison page, the more expensive editions are clearly full to the brim with awesome features but I don't need all of them, or not for all of my developers.
IME other vendors allow you to produce a shopping list of features and then charge accordingly, it's a shame that Microsoft couldn't stretch to this - they already have several 'application market place' implementations..
