MSDN Wiki?

Instructional Objectives by Davina DeVries, CC-BY I just love the fact that there’s a "Community Content" section to the MSDN documentation. I just found out that there’s an undocumented exception coming from the System.Net.Mail.MailMessage.Subject property, I browsed to the relevant MSDN page and simply added a line saying so.

It’s a nice copy of the features from PHP’s Documentation, but about 10 years too late, and also, mind you, not a Wiki at all. It’s comments. In a real Wiki, my corrections to the documentation would be displayed inline with the original documentation. You know, like Wikipedia. Dear Microsoft, please turn it into a real Wiki, at which time your documentation will retain its relevance for me.

On a side note, does anyone know of an add-in for Visual Studio that replaces F1 to a call to Google in my default browser?
