I’ve used a few version control systems: visual source safe, subversion, git, mercurial and tfs. My current favourite – git. It it’s the most popular one at the moment, but to be honest there’s a good reason for that. It has a gigantic learning curve, but once you grok the concept, everything falls into place. My second choice – subversion. I’ve used it for a long time and it got the job done. The one I am using at the moment – tfs and here’s where the story starts.
Have you ever straggled with generating and polishing gradient for wpf in xaml? I did many times. Did you use any tool for that, except Visual Studio Property tab? I didn’t. Until I stumble upon Online Gradient Maker.
