My day job is to work with ISVs in the UK which are “managed” by Microsoft to help them explore and adopt SQL Server 2005 and Visual Studio 2005. This is only a small subset of UK ISVs and I know from experience many of the "none managed" folks are still doing great things with our technology. If you are an ISV doing interesting stuff with either of these products then please contact me. Please include a few words about your company, your application and your use of VS/SQL. No promises on how much I can help – but I will do my best…
