I just posted an update on how you can customise the Visual Studio 2010 start page. The guidance from MSDN requires you to a) have the Visual Studio SDK installed and b) download a project template that was designed for the RC. To be honest I don’t think that’s a great way to highlight how easy it is to customise the start page.
Anyhow, the full details are across on the Professional Visual Studio 2010 website. Don’t forget to grab yourself a copy of the book via the link to Amazon
