Adding new features to Team System Web Access ?

Hi,

Is it legally possible to add new features to Team System Web Access ?
If so, Does Microsoft will continue to offer the support on the unmodified part of Team System Web Access?

Thanks

Honestly, I'm not sure on either count. In terms of adding new features, I believe that you're pretty safe: you're simply modifying files and potentially adding assemblies to a product that you've already installed. You have every right to modify the contents of your own server and things would only get dicey if you attempted to profit from it monetarily in some way. As for the latter point, I doubt that Microsoft will support the unmodified portion of TSWA since they'd be potentially debugging problems introduced by an outside source. But you'd have to check with them: personally, I'd love it if MS came out with some sort of plugin architecture for TSWA so that some of the ugly things I needed to do in order to get this project to work wouldn't be necessary.
