Visual Studio .NET Launch Date Announced

In last night's opening keynote address at COMDEX Fall 2001, Bill Gates chimed in that February 13, 2002 will be the official launch date of Visual Studio .NET. Launch events will be held in cities strewn across the United States and at worldwide locations. Visual Studio .NET is a crucial component of Microsoft's strategy to push developers toward XML Web services.

Beta 2 was released on June 19th coinciding with the tenth anniversary of Visual Basic, a language that stood as the basis for an entire generation of Windows applications.

Over 20 different programming languages -- including Microsoft's latest implementation of Java -- are supported. It also yields support for Web standards such as XML, SOAP, and UDDI to extend interoperability across platforms.
