Scott Guthrie recently posted some screenshots of the next VisualStudio on his blog, along with a great set of slides that he presented at WebDD in the UK. Checkout his post to get an even better perspective about the changes coming in Orcas and how they'll help you develop more efficiently.
Among the many new features in the March CTP, I find these particularly exciting:
- Full LINQ integration with C# and VB
- New ASP.NET WebForms design-surface with advanced CSS features
- New WPF designer with XAML IntelliSense
- New peer-to-peer networking APIs for adding collaboration features to apps
