Maybe I'm not looking carefully enough, but are there any possibility of developing for Sharepoint without having Windows 2003 Server Specifically I'm looking for Visual Studio extensions that work with a normal Windows XP installation.

With kind regards,

Somehow you will need to get ahold of the set of Microsoft.Sharepoint.*.dll's. With those you can develop for SharePoint on an XP box. Basically I copied the set from my SharePoint Server to a folder on my XP desktop. Whenever I need to reference one I just refer to that folder instead of a server.
