So, I am starting a new project at my work. It is going to be big. And it will be maintained and upgraded for at least 10 years to come.
It would be really nice to use the new .net 4.5 stuff for this project.
However, I have the unfortunate situation to work at a company that does not move completely off an OS until the Extended Support expires. So I will have XP users for some time to come.
I have read that MS is "Not commenting on the support of Windows XP for .net 4.5 at this time". That is fine and is their right. But I would hate to find out one month after we have thrown in with .net 4.0 that we could have done .net 4.5.
Does anyone have an idea when we will know one way or another if .net 4.5 is supported on Windows XP?
(NOTE: To be clear, I am asking for opinions on when we will know, not what the answer will be.)
