I don't know if there is any kind of license restriction, etc to using the ASP.Net MVC Framework, so I thought I'd ask.
We plan to use it for a website that will release in late February or early March. I'm not asking for an official release date I promise [:)]
But, if I tell you I know I'm taking my website's life into my own hands, and I tell you I've been doing software for a bunch of years and I know the danger of releasing betas into the wild am I ok using the MVC framework?
In other words, even if you release nothing between now and March (I know not likely, but let's just pretend), and I run on the CTP as is, if I'm comfortable with it, is Microsoft?
Thanks in advance,
