Disappointed to see that the demo IBuySpy portal app doesn't run cleanly on ASP.NET 1.1 (try using the edit links to edit a html content part). I Also tried the portal starter kit which appears to be a rev of the IBuySpy portal. The main difference seems to be that much of the portal config is now in an xml file, not a db, but looking at the code, its just a concurrency nightmare, better hope you only have one portal admin !. 3 out of 10 must try harder.
update IBuySpy is still labeled as demonstrating best practices, ouch don't think so. An interesting demo yes, best practices, don't see any. YMMV.
