I downloaded the MS Web Matrix asp.net tool yesterday, and I have to say i’m impressed. I get the feeling that it has been released because your average web developer does not have access to the prohibitively expensive Visual Studio.net. The tool includes a development server which can be used instead of IIS. Its a nice lightweight program with drag and drop GUI widgets, HTML, and code views and probably a bit more. The idea is that it is a community supported product – there’s an associated forum at www.asp.net.
