Re: VisualStudio online TFS
With my own server the problem is TFS.
With their service; it might be my client, might be my router, might be my ISP, might be any one of the multiple Microsoft Online/Live/Hotmail/Corporate/Office365 accounts I seem to need to have to login to any Microsoft service, it migth be their Visual Studio service, it might be Azure, it might be one of their data centers - I have no idea.
It's like saying that since I'm not a professional olympic athlete cycling to work can't be as reliable as the mixture of Bus+Train+Tube because they are all run by professionals.
(It also doesn't help that half of their help pages for hosted TFS tell you to login into the server and start entering TFS commandline admin commands.)
