Visual Studio Professional 2010 upgrades
Currently I seem to be spending most of my time in Visual Studio, in fact I used VS 2008 for my demos at the Manchester VBUG meeting last week and didn’t touch SQL Server Management Studio at all! During my day job I’m using VS 2010 RC.
I’m fortunate to have my own MSDN subscription, but I know that some people purchase it separately so any chance of getting it cheaper could be useful!
Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Professional will launch on April 12 and you can pre-order it as an upgrade for £484.99, this includes a subscription to MSDN essentials. If you want to see what you get for this check out http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-gb/products/2010/default.mspx although looking at http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/products the MSDN essentials edition doesn’t seem to include the TFS features so if you are needing TFS, I would check first.
To qualify for the upgrade you have to be using a previous version of Visual Studio or any other development tool. See Soma’s announcement about the release on his blog and to order go to http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-gb/pre-order-visual-studio-2010
