This is slightly old news, but Microsoft released Microsoft Visual Studio 2010. You can get more details on what it includes and the new features at http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio along with prices. If you are a student, then you should be able to download it from your college’s MSDNAA site, or you can sign up at http://www.dreamspark.net to download it for free. You will have to use your campus email address, as they verify that you are a student.
Microsoft also finalized and released to manufacturing, their Office 2010 suite. For students, they include a special version of the “Professional” version for $99.00. (This price is per ZDNet, as I haven’t seen the final prices). If you’re a Technet subscriber, you can download it now. Otherwise it will be available to the general public in June. You can also purchase the Office 2007 Ultimate Steal (if you are a college student) right now at http://www.ultimatesteal.com and are eligible for an upgrade to Office 2010 for free when it’s actually available. Essentially this means that you’ll only have to pay $69.00 or so for Office 2010 Ultimate (or any version that they send you for the upgrade)—which is well worth the money.
Have a great day:)
