Windows Azure: Development Fabric - Vista SP1 and Windows 2008 only

So before you download the CTP make sure you have Vista SP1 on your development machine (or Windows Server 2008) otherwise you won't be able to install it.

I've spoken to quite a few folks who have been complaining that it doesn't run on XP, and have been asking me why.

Part of the answer is pretty simple (i am sure there will be other reasons also), the Development Fabric is completely dependant on IIS 7. Therefore you need Vista or Windows Server 2008 (sorry).
