Free .Net Deployment Tool - Unleash It!

Upon looking for a good cheap deployment tool, I was referred to a free and very useful deployment tool called Unleash It! (formerly WebDeploy). It allows FTP & network deployments, as well as different profiles for deployments.

I've tested this out on a web service that I've written, pusing it to our DEV box and worked great and fast. I'd highly recommend this product if your looking for a cheap, quick and easy web deployment tool. It also integrates within Visual Studio .Net.

.Net 2005 Beta & Longhorn

Over a month ago I attempted an installation of .Net 2005 Beta on a Longhorn Virtual Machine image on my laptop. Burn, Burn Burn....

That virtual machine image went down and never came back up again. I now have a .Net 2005 Beta instance on an XP VM and I will have a review shortly.

Just an FYI for those considering putting the two on the same image.... I would recommend against it.

Happy trails!
