.NET 3.0 with Visual Studio 2005

Will .NET 3.0 work with VS 2005? For example, will I be able to design
GUIs with XAML in with .NET 3.0 and VS 2005?

Here's what I've heard from my Microsoft Rep...


As I've mentioned previously, Windows Vista will ship with the .NET
Framework 3.0 pre-installed. We're also testing to ensure that your
..NET Framework 1.1 and 2.0 applications will work on Windows Vista so
that your existing applications will continue to run as expected.
However, we will not support Visual Studio .NET 2002 or Visual Studio
..NET 2003 as development environments on Windows Vista. You can
continue to use Visual Studio .NET 2002 or 2003 on Windows XP to
develop applications that can run on Windows Vista. Given the customer
feedback that we've received since the launch of Visual Studio 2005
indicating the manageability of upgrading from Visual Studio .NET 2003
to Visual Studio 2005, we are focusing our efforts on ensuring VS 2005
is a great development platform for Vista.

Yes.

I'm not sure that you can make that conclusion. At this moment, the XAML
integration is being released as an add-in for VS2005, but ultimately, Orcas
will be a new version of VS, not an add-on. I don't recall seeing anything
that says that a XAML add-on for VC2005 will be available long-term, but
perhaps that is indeed the case.

For any serious XAML design work, you'd want to the Expression Interactive
Designer anway. It's lightyears better than the rudimentary XAML support in
the VS add-on.

See Mark's Boulter post here: http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=772474&SiteID=1.


That's probably not long-term, but I'm not sure if the OP was asking for
that. If the question was whether VS2005 will be a full-fledged .NET 3.0
development platform like Orcas, the answer is certainly no.

Yes, absolutely.
