I have some Windows Server 2008 hosting on which I intend to build my new personal web site. However, the problem I have is that I can't get hold of a copy of Server 2008 to develop on, without buying the full version (see here).
My question is, can I develop against the IIS which comes with Windows 7 and will it support all the features of the 'proper' IIS 7 on Server 2008? I'm aware the Win 7 version will have limitations, like only supporting a single site (I assume); I just want to know will it support URL rewriting, authentication, caching etc.
Hope you can help me out!
