Office 2003 development

Most people don't consider Office as a full blown development platform on which you can build some nice solutions for your customers. With Office 2003 and Visual Studio Tools for Office you can however create some nice applications in which you can use all the features of Office 2003 such as charting (Excel), document handling (Word) and e-mail and calendaring (Outlook). In the past if you had to program in Office, you had to use VBA. With Visual Studio Tools for Office, you can now write .Net applications for Office. Is that nice or what? Unfortunately Visual Tools for Office is only available for download for MSDN subscribers.
