Microsoft Posts New Web Development Tool

ASP.NET coders will want to check out a free new development tool called Web Matrix, which includes a WYSIWYG development environment, SQL Server management capabilities, and mobile-application creation features, all wrapped up in a tiny 1.2MB download of managed code goodness. While I was at Microsoft for a technical workshop, I learned that the company will use Web Matrix to test features intended for the next Visual Studio (VS) version. For more information, see the ASP.NET Web site.
