Microsoft Visual Studio Scrum 1.0... sucks

I've used Rally and JIRA to manage Scrum projects. This last time I decided to give the Visual Studio Scrum template a try and... it's just not what I expected. One of its major drawbacks is the inability to do time tracking. Some people might say that doing time tracking in Scrum is not beneficial and even useless. This might be true for internal projects, but with external clients you need a way to know how much work you've spent on a project (and if you're running out of the initial allocated hours).

Anyway, I'm going to test the MSF for Agile Software Development Process Template. Hope it offers more than the Visual Studio Scrum template.
