Visual Studio LightSwitch is a project that needs to exist, and I hope Microsoft perseveres with it. There's a genuine market need for a product like this, and Microsoft's ambitions—application development by nondevelopers—are the right ones to have. The regimented approach to database and user interface design is probably the right one to have too, though it may need a little refinement. But to really fill that role, I think Microsoft needs to reconsider the way it's branding and selling the product, and needs to take another look at the benefits that existing tools used for this kind of development have to offer....ARS Technica: http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2011/07/visual-studio-lightswitch-hits-the-market-but-misses-its-markets/
