Whidbey Hosting Process
By default every time you compile a WindowsApplication or ConsoleApplication project using VS2005, a “vshost.exe” and a “vshost.exe.config... files are created on the \Bin\Debug and \Bin\Release paths.

The .42 Number
The version number of .NET v2.0 is 2.0.50727.42 and VS2005's one is 8.0.50727.42.

WebProject References in Whidbey
As you may know, the web project file (.webproj) for a ASP.NET 2.0 Web Application is gone. So one of the things that I look was how the references (in Everett the entry references were in the .webproj) were handled. The conclusion is the following: If you add a reference to a binary that is not in GAC, its going to be copied to the /bin directory.
