Looks like content is still propagating across the net so some headlines still still need to update but the download is ready for MSDN Subscribers today and the content is here! Everyone else can download it on the 21st. I can’t wait to mention it to all the attendees at the SDC conference :)
Enjoy, and let us know what you think of Beta 2!
That's cool and all, but is there a chance this download is going to be made avaialable to people like myself who can't afford an MSDN Subscription?
I had a look at the subs available, and even if I were to buy the cheapest one, I'd have to pay twice what I earn monthly (at current exchange rates, that's only about $500) ... Sad, I know
Now I think of it, I'd even be happy with just VB 2010 to experiment with...
"Everyone else can download it on the 21st."
Beth.. i see the Express will also be available on 21st.. will the release date be the same as VS?
Turns out my boss didn't like me downloading the ISO at work and killed the download 94% of the way...
Is there any chance, Beth, that you send me a copy? I hope that's not breaking any copyright laws or anything, but as it was made freely downloadable, I think not.
Aside from someone sending me a disc with the ISO on it, I have no way of getting a copy while it's still relatively new. Would really appreciate a helping hand here.
