    What are the benefits of developing asp.net apps with vs2008/.net 3.5 over
    vs2005/.net 2.0? Are any improvements been made in vs 2008 to the
    authentication provider mechanism?

    Many Thanks

  2. First, the IDE is a bit more responsive. Second, you have a better surface,
    if you have to design. There are also additional bits to simplify your
    development, like LINQ, etc.
    None that I know of.

    Silverlight 2.0 (in beta).

    Check some samples, it rocks the suburbs.

  4. There are benefits in VS 2008,
    A lot of new features in .NET 3.5 over 2.0

    But VS2008 is not ready yet.... I used VS2008 Express version and had bunch
    of problems that make it hard to work with...
    Like hanging for 10 minutes occasionally..

    Got frustrated and reverted my project back to VS2005.

    We went back to vs2005 because vs2008 was "going mad" and clobbering the
    html in our aspx pages. The specific behavior was when using the wizard
    interface. It actually moved fields around. If you throw a table onto the
    design surface and then drag the columns and rows around in visual mode to
    size them it puts your whole table on one line, capitalizes the tds, trs,
    etc. Makes a mess of everyting. We will look again after a service pak.
