It turns out that the 30+ bugs and suggestions that I filed through MSDN Product Feedback during Visual Studio 2005’s beta cycle won me what looks like an acrylic trophy.  It should be “in the mail” at this point.  How exciting!  (I’m not even an MVP — wish I were!).

I was so happy to see that Microsoft add a bug reporting tool for VS 2005 while it was under development.  I used it tons.  I was amazed at the fast response time that I (usually) saw on it.  A great many bugs I found were fixed for the RTM version.  A few were not.  One of them ghastly.  I can’t believe they didn’t fix it before the RTM version.  Oh well.
