These are all the resources I know about so far for Microsoft's Visual
Studio.net family of technologies (includes ASP+, VB.net, VS.net, VC++.net,
C#, SOAP, Web Services, etc.).

These include ALL the links I've seen bandied around so far, not just
DevX/Fawcette ones.

I can't say it's comprehensive (I get a new resource every hour or so) but
it's a good starting point. It'd be good to build a Visual Studio.net portal
with all of these links, methinks.

Hope they are useful to you. Please send me any that aren't on this list.
Thanks!
