VS.NET 2003 Templates

How many thousand times have you created a new C# class, then deleted the ?Add constructor logic here? and/or the default, useless XML Documentation comment? Far too many, I'm sure.

Solving this problem is simple: Remove them from the template that's used to generate new classes. The file is found at the following location (VS.NET 2003):

%programfiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\VC#\VC#Wizards\CSharpAddClassWiz\Templates\1033

Other templates are scattered around below the %programfiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\VC# directory. Simply do an in-file search for ?///? and you'll find several more.

(I think EricGu or someone else posted something about this a while ago, but I can't find the post.)
