    So will we be able to do SharePoint development on Vista or Windows 7 against a WSS/MOSS server easily?  Or is the best experience still requiring using Windows Server as the developers workstation (or developer VM) OS?

    One of the things Rational has is the ability to drag and drop a pattern onto your design.  While you can implement this via GAT packages or Blueprints, the simplicity of dragging from a list of patterns onto your design and having the UML (okay, so it's not THAT great Wink) added was pretty cool to see.  Basically, a simple way to implement patterns.  I'd like that in VSTS.

    I didn't get to see what happens after the initial drag and drop, so I don't know if you could easily back it out, refactor it (say you implemented the facade pattern and decided later the mediator pattern was a better fit), or anything else.

    It's definitely my favorite cup.  Non-MS devs get the funniest look, and devs just think it's cool.
