To build excitement around the 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor, Intel is launching an action-adventure video titled "The Chase."

By enabling this capability, we lower the bar of entry for these folks to extend the capabilities of Visual Studio 2010 so that the community (as a whole) can benefit.
