Sharepoint 2010 on Windows XP?

  Asked By: Michael    Date: May 02    Category: Sharepoint 2010    Views: 5525

I'm a developer wanting to learn Sharepoint. Last Saturday, I met a .NET
architect that told me the new version of Sharepoint (version 2010) was
designed to run on a desktop computer running Windows (not Windows Server).
I'm still using Windows XP SP3. Can I install the trial version of
Sharepoint 2010 on my Windows XP? Will Sharepoint 2010 work on Windows XP?

I think you can run SP2010 on XP machine
for development purpose, you can use windows  7. refer to the following

Ok, I found a Microsoft article that Sharepoint 2010 can be installed on
Windows 7 x64, Windows Vista Service Pack 1 x64, or Windows Vista Service
Pack 2 x64 but not Windows XP. Looks like I need to get a new laptop.
