more on XP Service Pack 2 and breaking developer apps

Now that my awareness is up about the issues with XP SP2 from this Infoworld article, I caught this article from Microsoft Watch that has some more information. (I really have not had time to look into this so I am grateful for Joris Evers and Mary Jo Foley’s articles on this topic). Mary Jo notes that there will be some service packs for VS.NET 2002 and 2003 in the wings to help with some of the breaking changes. However, everything else seems to be up to us – oh all of those VB6 apps I have out there…sniff sniff. I wonder about my older FrontPage and ASP sites and my friends who run their businesses with Access database.
