What is the best way to get to the current context in MVC besides going through the global static method?
I was wondering... As of now, .Net 4.5 requires Windows Server 2008 or better. The contract I am on right now has mostly 2003 servers (woo hoo, lucky me.) Will this new "take only what you need" .Net be able to run on these 2003 servers? Is there a specific reference that makes it not work on 2003?
jsucupira, to help answer your question better. What are you using the HttpContext to get access to? The controller class provides access to many items like Request, Response, Server, Session.
Grandizer, the ASP.NET vNext bits requires .NET 4.5 (which requires Windows Server 2008 or higher) or the Core CLR which requires Windows Server 2008 R2 (the alpha bits require Windows Server 2012 but this is just a point in time thing).
Windows Server 2003 is already out of mainstream product support and will be out of extended support on 7/14/2015. For that reason we are not supporting that platform. Sorry.
