As everyone is probably blogging ... Vista is out! Yeah!

Very nice. I am quite looking forward to have Vista on my machine full time now as a finished product and I am very much looking forward to MSFT Office 2007 and the abilities it gives developers to more easily build within its environment. Have you seen the new VSTO Special Edition for Visual Studio 2005? If not, then this is something to check out. It seems quite easy to program to from the demos that I have seen.

I am also looking at the .NET Framework 3.0 release and what this will mean for application development. It is a new time with a new platform and Microsoft is not going to have to make a big much to promote a new way to build applications thereby avoiding the application decision of, "Do I build this as a thin client or a thick client?". I am looking forward to WPF adoption and the ability to build a WPF application and distribute it within an organization. I would imagine that we are a bit of time off from total acceptance. It did take a while for the idea of applications being contained within the browser to be an excepted part of enterprise development - but now it has become the norm.
