I've been reminded by The Powers That Be™ that I haven't provided enough public noise around Visual Studio .NET Professional 2003 Special Edition. So, here we go.

If you haven't purchased Visual Studio .NET 2003 yet (and if you haven't -- "Bad Zoot. evil, naughty Zoot!"), the Special edition is an excellent way to get your copy. For only a few sheckels, you get:
  • Visual Studio .NET 2003 Professional Edition
  • Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition (for dev use only)
  • SQL Server 2000 Developer Edition
  • Visual Studio Tools for Office
  • Four MS Press books for self-paced learning
  • a voucher for a 50% discount on a certification exam
In short, hours of fun for the whole family. (Assuming your whole family develops in VB, C++, J# or C#.)
If you order now (and can identify the movie the above "Zoot" quote came from), we'll through in a limited edition cardboard box, and commemorative styrofoam peanuts or polybag cushioning.

Operators are standing by.
