As part of their “Early Access Program,” the folks at JetBrains have posted a build of TeamCity that contains support for TFS version control. They are looking for feedback, so give it a try and let ’em know what you think.
Jeff Atwood has written a post on how to extend the Vista grace period to 120 days. It turns out that you can extend it three times for 30 days each, giving you up to 120 days when you count the original 30-day grace period.

In Team Build v1.0, it is not possible,
Lorenzo Barbieri wrote about a tool on CodePlex called TFSBuildManager. I didn’t know about this one. It’s a tool written by Dudu Shmaya. The CodePlex project page has the following about the project.
TFSBuildManager is a utility to manage Team Foundation build types in an environment other than Visual Studio.
