The MSDN web site is full of great information, but runs too slow and is too awkward for my taste. If it could actually remember my preference to exclude examples for certain languages from the documentation, maybe it would be worth it. But since it cannot, it becomes an example of "too many bells and whistles".
Fortunately, they have a "low bandwidth" version that not only loads faster, but is easier to navigate.
Jon Galloway documented this some time ago with a nice "bookmarklet" for toggling the MSDN mode. I actually expect to read more of the MSDN material now!
