Michael Van Cleave Traveling the technical world, learning the language

As an instructor at a local colorado community college teaching .NET technologies, I was always approached by students that are not happy to have to either buy an upgrade for their XP Home Edition or that they have to mess with their only computer at home which contains important files that if they screw up upgrading that they might lose, just to install IIS.

I have guided them to other editors that make it possible to create ASP.NET applications without having to upgrade from XP Home. 

Now there is hope.

In working with the latest edition of VS2005, I am happy to see that Microsoft made some changes to the IDE that makes it possible to develop ASP.NET applications without IIS.  It uses it's own background application process to serve it pages.  This will make it much easer for many students to make the investment in quality tools that make it easy to produce quality applications.
