.net 2.0 ships with VS 2005 (Nov 2005) Vista isnt shipping until late next year I think.

Im guessing your thinking Avalon/Indigo both of which were code names now known as "Windows Presentation Foundation", "Windows Communication Foundation" respectivly. Offered together as .net addon known as WinFX Runtime Components
