Using the Whidbey CTP Bits on Longhorn 4074

I know there has been some disappointment that Whidbey is not yet working on the latest longhorn builds. Today I found this. I'll second the "try at your own risk" sentiment since I can tell you that there has been no internal testing of this scenario. Enjoy!

Visual Studio 2005 Community Technology Preview - March bits on the WinHEC
build of Longhorn. Great Job Miguel!

    Going to try that soon. My "instant new feature" imagination brought an idea of the VS CTP installer having some -switch that makes it forget about whether it’s "no internally tested scenario" like installing VS CTP on LH is. I had the idea that it’s probably possible to install on LH but not without some "hacking", seems Miguel saved me from the effort!

    Thanks for the idea. I’ll pass it along.
