upgrading drive of 2015 macbook air, such thing as too fast?

I was considering upgrading the drive of a macbook air that i got and was amazed at the difference between some of the NVMe PCIe M.2 drives at around 3,938 MB per second and other SATA drives (which I am not wholly sure can be used anyway, even with adapters?) that are more in the 700-800s MB p/s. Questions are:

  1. would the 2015 macbook air be a bottle neck thus making such a blazing fast NVMe M.2 drive a bit moot?
  2. Has anyone had any experience with these adapters that would make using these non-mac drives usable in a mac?

VS 2015 to VS 2017 issue with installation 2015 opens instead

I’m having this issue where I use dPInstaller to install new SQL server and Visual Studio 2017. However, when I try to install Visual Studio 2015 opens up with the Visual Studio 2017 script.

I tried troubleshooting it i.e. repair/update previous installation and tried running as administrator. This is for a VM machine and software is hosted via. dPInstaller.

Any help would be useful.

The questions:

  1. It is necessary to install IE 10?

Use double-click to see diffs for pending changes using VisualSVN in Visual Studio 2015

I am new to VisualSVN, coming from AnkhSvn. I am using the “Pending Changes” window to review my changes to the solution.

When I double-click into the tree of files, I get the file opened for display in Visual Studio 2015.

Context menu of VisualSVN for pending changes

This is the first menu entry in the context menu. How to change this behaviour, to open the diff tool on double-click instead?

Note: Opening the diff tool works with the context menu and also with the keyboard shortcut (CTRL+D), but my workflow would be faster, if I could just double-click to see the diffs.
