    (I know this is a great big newsgroup no-no, but I originally only posted to
    microsoft.public.dotnet.general and that newsgroup doesn't seem to have near
    the readership of these - so I thought I'd also post this info here for the
    benefit of the greater dotnet programming community.)

    Well, after looking at this list, I'm thinking of staying with XP/VS2005 for
    a while longer. At least until SP2 is out and Vista has been burped a few
    times.

    Here's the link to the list of KNOWN woes that await MS developers on Vista.

    And don't forget to review
    http://www.microsoft.com/sql/howtobuy/windowsvistasupport.mspx for the SQL
    Server 2005 / Vista KNOWN issues also.

    Is there any wonder fewer and fewer people are choosing programming as a
    career?

    Thanks to Spam Catcher for submitting the following in another thread.....

    "Visual Studio on Windows Vista

    http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/aa948853.aspx

    I would avoid using VS.NET on Vista until VS.NET 2005 SP1 Update for
    Windows Vista is final."

  3. I would avoid using VS.NET on Vista until VS.NET 2005 SP1 Update for
    That has been released some time ago. more than a month in any case.
    And I think this has zilch to do with people choosing a career in
    programming or not.

    Though I have to admit I am pleasantly surprised that the original post was
    not accompanied by a 'linux is perfect' manifesto.

  4. I seem to have missed something.

    "For developers using Visual Studio 2005 on Windows Vista, Microsoft
    is in current development on an update to Service Pack 1 called the
    ‘Visual Studio 2005 SP1 Vista Refresh Beta’. This update builds on the
    improvements made in SP1 and delivers a first class experience for
    developers wanting to take advantages of the new features in Windows
    Vista. The Visual Studio 2005 SP1 Update for Windows Vista is expected
    to ship after the consumer availability of Windows Vista in Q1 of 2007
    and is now available in beta."

    If you have other information, I'd be most happy to hear it.
    My own impression is that arrogant attitudes can be found among
    supporters of any OS.

  5. I would avoid using VS.NET on Vista until VS.NET 2005 SP1 Update for
    My bad. I assumed that SP1 is also SP1 for Vista, which it is, except that
    the SP1 that you now install on vista is not 'SP1 Update for vista' Maybe
    SP2 would have been a better name...
    True.
    It wasn't my intention to be arrogant, and I am sorry if I appeared that
    way.
    But from time to time, there are posts about how we are all stupid for using
    Windows / VC and that linux / gcc would save the world if we were willing to
    free us from the yada yada yada.

    Which is why I sometimes get ticked off about these kinds of posts.
    These forums are supposed to be about programming and helping each other.
    Starting threads like this has no point whatsoever. They can only raise
    ideological debates, possibly ending with harsh words.
    There are far more appropriate places for holding such debates.

    Can you provide a link to page describing what it fixes for .NET C#
    programmer?
    I could only find fixes for C++.

  7. That has been released some time ago. more than a month in any case.
    The only list I found was of the VC++ bugs. That was published on the VC++
    team bolg.

  8. This is because there are only fixes for VC++ and the IDE not for C#, note that C# is only a
    very small part of VS.
