Is it possible to use .net framework 2.0 in VS2003

P: n/a

I have VS2003 which use .NET framework1.1.
VS2005 use .NET framework 2.0

I just wonder if it's possible to download .NET 2.0 from somewhere to use in
VS2003 or is the only solution to get VS 2005 if I want to use .NET
framework 2.0.

If you want to use VS, then pretty much, yes.

There are some horribly tortured hacky things you could possibly do to
cobble together something that just about compiles, but why bother? 2.0
introduces so many language features (partial classes, anonymous
methods, generics, etc) that you can't expect a botched 2003 2.0 hybrid
to work very well. If the issue is cost, download a 2005 express
edition (from MS - link follows) for nil, nada and zip. Or perhaps use
a freeware IDE or just csc / msbuild directly.
