Ok, i got a weird one. All of our developers have MSDN licences, and so we are all eligible to install and use Visual Studio 2010.
However, the organisation has asked for a "good reason" (i.e. a business case) for upgrading from 2008 to 2010. Unfortunately, "it's better" and "it's free" isn't a good enough reason.
I would greatly appreciate your thoughts on solid arguments as to why we should upgrade from visual studio 2008 to visual studio 2010 (or from .net 3.5 to .net 4.0)
What i got so far is:
- Productivity boost (need a way to back that statement)
- Reduce attrition (career growth for developers to use latest technology)
- Enhanced Security (???)
Essentially, i need to be able to go back to them and say "We need to upgrade, and here's why"
