Why should I register my copy of Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2?
1. To improve New Zealand's position on the world stage.
2. To make sure your favourite language gets proper representation.
These graphs are based on New Zealand data. Visual Web Developer is owning the space but there is an arm wrestle going on between the express versions of C# and VB.
3. To get free stuff.
Did you know there is a "Register Product" link on the Help menu in Visual Studio?
When you complete the registration process you will receive an email with a link to the online books. Each user will have access to one book per code. Developers who register multiple SKUs of the Beta will receive additional access codes, giving them access to more books. The offer is available worldwide, books are English-only.Detailed breakdown of free online books available for each VS Beta SKU:Visual Web Developer Express and VB ExpressIntroducing ASP.NET 2.0, English Introducing Microsoft® Visual Basic® 2005, English Writing Secure Code, 2nd Edition, EnglishJ# Express, C# Express, C++ Express and SQL Express Writing Secure Code, 2nd Edition, EnglishVisual Studio Standard, Visual Studio Professional, Visual Studio Team Suite and VS Premier Partner Edition Introducing ASP.NET 2.0, English Introducing Microsoft® Visual Basic® 2005, English Writing Secure Code, 2nd Edition, English
