Bamboo Solutions have come up with a way of installing WSS 3 onto Windows Vista. Developers everywhere, rejoice! No longer do we have to run a separate VM / VPC with a server OS on it just to develop against WSS 3.
They have all the information here – hopefully Microsoft will not issue a takedown notice (which would be an incredible shame… I mean, it’s an unsupported configuration… and it’s a free download from the MS website… but a similar sort of thing’s happened before). It looks like they acknowledge its existence but refuse to have anything to do with it.
Thanks Bamboo Solutions! You guys have made my life easier…
