I'm curious if it's possible to use Visual Studio 2008 to develop ASP.NET pages/sites to run under
SharePoint 2010 ?
If not, then is it a good idea to use AJAX or IFrames and display dinamic content from ASP.NET pages on an organized
SharePoint 2010 pages?
Do I need to install SP2010 on the machine where I will be using visual studio 2010 in order to use the dev tools for SharePoint? I assume it's yes. However, I was able to open an existing SharePoint project even though I did not have SP 2010 on
the machine...how was that possible?
If I try to create a new empty sharepoint project., I get an error saying I need to "A sharepoint server is not installed on this computer. A sharepoint must be installed to work with sharepoint projects"
how come i was able to open an existing sharepoint project which someone else created on their machine?

Collection Initializers are a great addition to the language and allows concise syntax in order to initialize both framework and user defined collection types.
Visual Basic .NET is the result of a significant rebuild of Visual Basic for the Microsoft .NET Framework. There are a number of changes that make Visual Basic .NET easier to use, more powerful than Visual Basic 6.0, and give it the kind of access to system resources that in the past required the use of languages like C++. One of the most important additions is object inheritance. In Visual Basic .NET, all managed types derive from System.Object. An important new language feature is garbage collection, which is administered by the Common Language Runtime and provides better memory management. The universal type system allows for greater interoperability, also contributing to the enhanced power and flexibility found in Visual Basic .NET.
