Straightforward XP SP 2 advice needed

Hi all,

I've spent the last four years working my ass off on a pretty comprehensive web app.  95% of its operation is like that of windows...dialogs popup, dialogs spawn other dialogs, file downloads are triggered through script...in fact all of the windowing interface is of course Javascript and there's heaps of it.

I'm feeling quite panicked now the more I read about XP 2, but here's the rub- I dont have XP!  I cant afford it after shelling out on 2003 Server.

One question I would just love to be answered is this:  Is it possibile to just operate as normal once you simply enter a website into a trusted zone?  Surely they must have done it like that?  Can anyone who has written windowed style web apps share some advice?

I read that Intranet zones are fine (which is cool as its pretty much a LAN product anyway), but really, I've spent so much time fine tuning the whole lot, pixel perfect dialogs etc that if MS are sticking silly status bars and notifications all over it will simply kill it.

I just hope its not going to kill my style of application :o(

May want to take a look at this:

Looks like most functionality is still there, just constrained somewhat to prevent certain malicious activities.....

Good link that Dave thanks.

Also, I managed to find out a bit about MS and their web-apps, most notably their CRM which needs a patch to work correctly but mostly works.

Thanks anyway.
