It's now official. And what a better day to born a revolution! (private joke, sorry!). Visual Studio 2008 can now be downloaded from Msdn.
From my point of view, .Net Framework 3.5 is one of the major revolutions since the .Net era. I remember that when .Net was born, one were saying that it would be a bigger revolution than from MS-DOS to Windows, and nobody was believing it. Now look back and check.
The born of .Net 3.5 with LINQ, lambda, anonymous types, etc, is a major change in application development. Wait and see.... !
