My Visual Studio crashes every time when I download the Json.NET package. Please fix it.

NuGet uses the same ideas as the package management that's been available for some years in the Linux world, and succeeds at replicating the basic functionality which makes it useful for simple projects. Unfortunately, in classic MS style, it's failed to replicate the more advanced features such as the ability to install the package source code. It's possible to skip package dependencies using the CLI (but not the GUI), so you can replace a NuGet-provided library with an external reference but it's painful. As a result, we still prefer to retain manual control of the important libraries in our major products.

Makes life easy

This has completely streamlined our ability to manage dependencies--if you're not using NuGet, you're making your dev life that much more difficult...

I have never once been able to install or upgrade from Visual Studio without an error. Even on VS 2012 now, I am still having problems.

Pretty Awesome regardless of re-installing

Excellent tool. I've never had an issue with this and I've never minded having to uninstall and re-installing on new version releases, takes 2 minutes. The benefits far out weight anything negative.

Call me when I can install this without needing to uninstall and re-install this. Clumsy, clumsy M$

The UI is missing a pretty basic feature: installing older versions of available packages. Also updating the Nuget version inside VS never seems to work - you have to uninstall and reinstall it.
