Soma just published some info about Microsoft “dogfooding” VS 2010 and .NET 4

There are some interesting statistics and explanation of what Soma think were critical factors to success.

  • 828,978 work items, including bugs, tasks and other work that we track
  • 25,170,852 source code files under version control
  • 15.5 terabytes of data

12,000 people inside Microsoft running VS 2010 for their day-to-day development

employees installed pre-release versions of .NET Framework 4 to their desktops more than 35,000 times and MSDN deployed pre-release .NET Framework 4 on 112 servers
