Microsoft is switching the light but will it turn on or off?

During the VSLive! keynote in Redmond, Microsoft yesterday announced a new Visual Studio product called LightSwitch. LightSwitch is a new SKU for Visual Studio that will allow people to create line of business (LOB) applications for the desktop and the cloud without writing a single line of code. It will also be shipped with future version of Visual Studio Pro and above. In a way it reminds me of Access but with the difference that it can use different data sources, including Sharepoint and Azure SQL. Since the announcement there have been a wild discussion within the MVP programmers community, especially among VB and C# MVPs if this is a good or a bad thing.
