According to Soma Somasegar's last post, the following is/isn't supported on Windows Vista, Microsoft's OS which has to replace Windows XP:
- Visual Basic 6 runtime and IDE. Supported.
- Visual Studio.NET 2002. Not supported
- Visual Studio.NET 2003. Not supported
- Visual Studio.NET 2005. Supported with SP1 (now in beta) and you've to shut down UAC, till they've fixed that after Vista ships.
Microsoft has decided to make the bootsound of Vista mutable! . See the article on Ars Technica.
