Enabling MOSS to use .Net 3.5

There are so many great features in .Net 3.5 (LINQ, C# language features, LINQ, workflow enhancements, REST, LINQ, etc…..) that you would really like to use them in MOSS, right?  Well, the problem is that MOSS is ASP.Net 2.0 based and by default you cant use these features.  As it turns out, its fairly simple to turn on the .net 3.5 framework.  Take a look at this article on Codeproject:  http://www.codeproject.com/KB/aspnet/PMInSharePoint.aspx.

 Thanks to Kirk Evans who pointed this out to me.

    Scot Hillier’s SharePoint 2007 Features project on CodePlex – http://codeplex.com/features – also has a .Net 3.5 Web.Config Feature with the 3.5 assembly references as well as AJAX and Silverlight support. However, it doesn’t include the <compiler /> revisions. Are these even necessary if the pages don’t have inline script blocks?

    Hey, I know this article is over a year old, but the link posted doesn’t work anymore. Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to enable the 3.5 framework with MOSS 2007?
