Phew!  A set of Visual Studio Team System Tech Notes have now been published on MSDN, including some fifteen new articles I've written on topics related to the Whitehorse architecture tools.  These should all be easy to read and are inter-linked, to make them an easy to browse.  Hopefully they will provide some useful background and some new insights into the Distributed Systen Designers. 

Below are links to each of my notes, ordered in what is probably a good sequence in which to read them.
