Don Box does VB9 too

Don Box coded up a nice little VB 9.0 program that serves up an ATOM feed containing data about the running processes of the host machine. It's just 50 lines of code.

I wonder how many lines that will take in the programming language that starts with a J 🙂

Run it in Visual Studio 2005 with the LINQ May 2006 CTP installed and check out http://localhost/bob in IE7.0 Beta 2. You might want to change the MIME-type from application/atom+xml to text/xml to be able to view it more easily in IE 6.0 or Firefox.
