Sql 2008 Management Studio Gripe

I do like the version of SQL Server Management Studio that comes with SQL Server 2008 but one really dumb shortcomming iritates me like camel hair boxer shorts. Why, oh why, oh why doesn’t it sort the source files in a project into alphabetically order?

I thougth this ommission was pretty striking in SQL 2005 its just plain unforgivable in 2008. If the guys that write SSMS can’t figure out a decent sorting algorithm for their XML output they should wander down the Redmond corridor and have a chat to Anders Hejlsberg who will point them at LINQ to XML. Failing that give me 50 bucks and I’ll write one for them.

Come on Mircosoft get this irritating feature sorted!
