SOAP and Studio 7

Taking a look at http://www.zdnet.com/zdhubs/stories/special2000/0,9968,2438585,00.html and http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/nextgen , and watching Ballmer's keynote, it looks like at least part of Microsoft is trying to turn Visual Studio 7 into the ultimate SOAP client and server development tool. And they've fixed almost all of the annoyances of the VB language. Unfortunately, Studio 7 won't be out till late this year or early next year ( MS says late this year, ZDNet says early next year).
I really liked one exchange between Ballmer and the other Microsoftie (Visual Studio Project Planner Dave Mendlen). It went something like this:
Mendlen: ... and because this is all built on open standards, instead of calling a procedure written in VB on Windows 2000, you could call a procedure written in C++ on a Linux box.
Ballmer: Of course, we'd prefer that you develop with VB and Windows 2000.
Mendlen: But you could. [He grins]
