ActiveDocumentHost to be cut from .Net 2.0

To all those who thought that with .Net 2.0 and ActiveDocumentHost (see http://www.windowsforms.net/WhidbeyFeatures/default.aspx?PageID=2&ItemID=12&Cat=Runtime&tabindex=5) we would finally have a clean way of display OLE documents (Excel, Word, etc) within Windows forms:

I have just read here http://www.shawnburke.com/default.aspx?document=128&userinterface=9 that this features is going to be cut from .Net 2.0.

I am appalled (well, maybe that's a bit too strong!) at this possibility, so I added a suggestion to the Product Feedback Centre that they reconsider this decision. To vote for this suggestion go to

http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/ProductFeedback/viewFeedback.aspx?FeedbackId=896f2e5f-04f3-4ceb-83c0-2bece91b544c.

Maybe it will work!

That URL doesn't seem to work. Go to http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/ProductFeedback/ and do a search for "ActiveDocumentHost" and you should find it.

Stay out of fucking IT you goof, moron, loser, whatever you posing as today.
That's what I said.
You've got to learn the hard way.
And quit telling everyone anything, you fucking uniformed hard working mailmen.
Just go postal and leave me out of it.

Masterof the universe.
