The file close context command will be unified.

On Visual Studio, right click on a file tab, “Close All But This.”

On Visual Studio for MacOS, also known as Xamarin Studio, select a file tab, and the context menu is “Close Others.”

Just realigning that bit tells me that Microsoft is serious about merging the tool.

Microsoft Build Conference 2017 – The Cloud Logo

I had a good spot for the 2017 Microsoft Professional Developer’s conference Keynote. I was at the head of the class. I could not help but notice something while Scott Guthrie was speaking. ¬† He has the Microsoft Cloud logo behind him. ¬†Specifically it is in the shape of what I have seen as the Microsoft Hybrid Cloud.

Since I am at the front, it is easier for me to watch Scott talk on the monitor.

I can’t help but notice that the cloud is a bit jagged at the bottom.

It gets me to wondering. Apple has the “Golden Ratio” designed into their cloud logo for iCloud. I wonder what the design guidelines are for the Microsoft Cloud logos. There seems to be a few of them.
