As part ofa recent Visual Studio 2005 SP1 announcement,the Corp VP of Microsoft's Developer Divisionstated that Visual Studio.NET 2003 won't be supported under Windows Vista. Frans Bouma, Paul Wilson, and others have done a good job of raising the level of awareness on the issue. I agree that it's not, you know, a good thing, but I wanted to hear how big a problem it really is. Does "not supported" mean it will blue screen your computer and set you on fire, or does it mean it'll mostly work with the occasional annoyance? It seems like it may be the latter. Scott Hanselman, who has actually been using Vista, told me that "Some obscure things like autoregistration of COM Interop Assemblies doesn’t work. But it’s working fine for me."
