No, Microsoft has Active Server Pages (ASP). Visual InterDev is just ties
Active Server Page /development/ into Microsoft Visual Studio (which
includes MSVC, J++, etc. VB is included but won't be part of the common
interface until version 6).

As far as visual development environments, I'm so used to programming
HTML/ASP "in the buff" -- i.e. with notepad and i/sql, that I've really not
used InterDev much -- although the VisualStudio text editor does some nice
color coding.

See my other post regarding ASP.

Doesn't Microsoft's Visual InterDev do the same things Cold Fusion does? If
not, how are they different? If so, how do they compare as far as strength,
usability, learning curve, etc.?
