If you want to kick the tires and build out some scenarios on the Office and SharePoint 2010 RTM environment this is an excellent way to start. This VHD includes Windows Server 2008 R2, SharePoint 2010, Office 2010, Visual Studio 2010 and SQL Server 2008 R2 and more, so it’s well ready to enable a jump start and save some setup time. This VHD is also what all the Channel 9 Office 2010 Training Course content is built and tested on. So if you download the Office 2010 Developer Training Kit and install it on this VHD you’re all set to do some dev work!!
Follow this link to the VHD. Then refer to my blog post for a few additional setup details.
