Did I fail to answer your question during my VS2008 for Web Developers webcast?

I just reviewed the questions log from the webcast.  It appears that some of the questions that were in the Q&A manager disappeared before I was able to view them.  I want to sincerely apologize if you felt that I ignored your question.  I did not.  I always do my best to answer every last question to the best of my ability.  In my opinion, getting your questions answered is the greatest benefit of attending a live event instead of just watching a recording.  As a mea culpa, I have gone through the questions and posted my best answers.

Q: Does the .NET Framework 3.5 require IIS 7.0? Will it on Windows Server 2003 / IIS6.

A: IIS 7.0 is not required.  The .NET Framework 3.5 works on Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows XP.

Q: Does LINQ to SQL require SQL Server?  What support does it (or will it) have for other RDMS?

A: LINQ to SQL requires SQL Server.  LINQ to Entities will enable support other RDBMS.  For more details see http://blogs.msdn.com/data/archive/2007/04/28/microsoft-s-data-access-strategy.aspx.

Q: Are AJAX Control Toolkit controls production-quality

A: My opinion is yes.  Every release of the AJAX Control Toolkit goes through rigorous testing.  As with any software, bugs are possible.  All known issues are available for viewing at http://www.codeplex.com/AtlasControlToolkit/WorkItem/List.aspx.

These are the only questions I don't remember answering.  Please let me know if I missed any.
