It's out that Windows Vista has been made available for download for MSDN subscribers. For developers that are running Visual Studio 2005 on Vista, Microsoft has created a page listing all known issues: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/aa948853.aspx
This one caught my attention:
Title: Exception thrown when accessing FTP URL's
- Description: When a user attempts to access a FTP URL Visual Studio calls getInputStream() and getContent() of URLConnection which results in it throwing java.io.IOException "The operation has timed out".
- Work Around: None
Notice the exception? Seems Microsoft is using Java without anyone finding out before. Now, who you're gonna blame? ;-)
