I am pretty sure that I read this correctly, but since we will have to put out the cash for this, I want to make sure. We are hiring a new developer who will be in charge of maintaining our SharePoint 2010 environment. As such they may be required
to create some webparts, templates, etc. using Visual Studio 2010. It seems that you have to have Visual Studio 2010 and SharePoint 2010 on the same machine to do this development. Can someone confirm? If so it will change the type of
laptop and OS we get for this person.
I tried to connect to a remote sharepoint environment on my machine, but I was not successful, which I think is validating my comments above. The other option I guess is to install Visual Studio on the server and have him remote on to that
for doing work.
