I develop software using Visual Basic; my software runs in the "Windows"
environment.

You would not believe how FAST things change in this world! Our software
that runs in Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS), which has been running for
just over a year, is now legacy stuff! MTS is going away with the advent of
Microsoft's ".Net" initiative!

Sheesh! Talk about walking on quicksand!
