VS2005, VS2007 (Orcas), XNA, LINQ, WPF in Vista

how is that for a title... =o)

Justin and I were playing today with these technologies, it wasn't so much fun as we expected, in short all those things don't work together in Vista, if you want more details read on
  • VS2005 doesn't work on Vista, it crashes randomly and very often
  • VS2007 works fine on Vista
  • XNA development is not supported on VS2007 or Vista, only in VS2005 Express
  • the latest WPF is not supported in VS2007, only in VS2005
  • LINQ works fine on VS2007
so if you're thinking about playing with any of those technologies in Vista, reconsider using Windows XP
