  5. Followed the “Famous 5-minute install” instructions located on this page.

Hey look, ASP.NET has made it’s first live-supported release!  This is great!

I have been using the MVC pattern for a good 8 months now and I just love it.  It just makes so much sence to the way I think. Sure there is a learning curve to get started with ASP.NET MVC, whatever, it’s worth the trip.

I read about it here first.  Phil Haack wrote about the release.
You can get the release from here.

Remember if you have a previous version of ASP.NET MVC loaded, you will have to unistall it first.  A short time ago, Phil Haack, Scott Hanselman, Rob Conery, and ScottGu release a FREE tutorial to MVC, as a fist “Chapter” to their upcomming book, ASP.NET MVC 1.0.



These are great, from a software engineering point of view.
