Is anyone running Visual Basic .NET on Windows XP Home Edition?  Microsoft lists the system requirements for Visual Basic .NET but does not list Windows XP Home Edition.  They list XP Professional but not Home Edition.  Does anyone know if it runs on XP Home Edition?

requirements for developpers are different of those for users.

dev: http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/productinfo/sysreq.asp

users: http://msdn.microsoft.com/downloads/default.asp?url=/downloads/sample.asp?url=/msdn-files/027/001/829/msdncompositedoc.xml

I have eared (but not tried) that developpers can run VS on XP home but won't be able to do anything regarding web apps/services.

I realize that requirements are different for developers than for users.  I guess I was hopeful that it would run on XP Home edition.  I'm really annoyed because this is another limitation that Microsoft has put into XP Home edition.  Personal Web Server will not work on XP Home Edition either.
