Adventures with AppFabric, BizTalk & Clouds

VS Themes Collection (VS10,VS08,VS05)

Just came across this great site with a collection of color schemes for Visual Studio 2010 and older versions too. There are some real beauties there. I quite like the retro look of Turbo-Pascal Revisited (though i doubt i could use it for a long time without drowning in the blue) and have started to use Desert-Ex Revised with a change of font to Consolas 12 point. Vibrant Ink is pretty good but can hurt the eyes with its brightness.

I also found that when you first run VS10, it asks if you want to import current settings from previous versions and then migrates those settings across nicely. I had been running Ragnorak Blue , one of Tomas Restrepo’s settings in VS2008 and that ported very nicely across. This StudioStyles site also has the VS10 version of Ragnorak Blue.

So if you like spicing up your coding experience with different color schemes, this site should have something for you. Enjoy.
