Out of curiosity, what do you use VS2012 for? I mainly use GCC and the GNU compilers for my programming work.

Use it for ASP.NET, Dynamics CRM 2011, SharePoint 2010/2013 Development.
Also use it in conjunction with TFS for source control and ALM.

I got a tall aluminium and blue leather coffee flask/cup saying IE8 or IE9 on the side for helping Beta test something or other, I forget what now

Left it at my old work though :( Was my daily coffee cup, even though it tried to burn my face off with every sip
