Microsoft releases Vista programming tools

Microsoft on Wednesday gave developers access to a key piece of Windows Vista, months ahead of the operating system's release.

The company posted near-final versions of two software development technologies that are part of WinFX, the underlying programming model being introduced with Vista, which is slated to ship late this year.

The release is "a significant checkpoint" on the road toward delivery of the company's new programming model, since it allows developers to build and deploy applications on their core production systems, said Ari Bixhorn, director of Web services strategy at Microsoft.

Developers will have some GREAT new tools to create some very nice features in new programs, and web sites. But, from what I've read, they're not happy because they're getting final code too close to the release. I think there will be very few "feature rich" applications for Vista at it's release.
