    Mayhem needs Visual Studio?

    From the tutorials I see at the Mayhem site it appears I need Visual Studio and at least some rudimentary programming language capability to use this tool. Is this correct?

    WFS,

    According to the article:
    Mayhem "is not as powerful as working with Visual Studio. But not many people are willing to take the effort to become expert programmers, so this provides a tool that allows people to do a lot of stuff very quickly," Dietz said. By placing the program in open source, Microsoft is hoping that more developers will write more modules for Mayhem, expanding the program's applicability.
    So it would appear to me that it's for programmers who aren't using Visual Studio.
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!
