Free VS 2005 Standard from Microsoft
« on: March 30, 2007, 09:51:25 AM »
Microsoft is again giving away copies of Visual Studio 2005 Standard to people who complete a couple of 'labcasts'.

Essentially, you download a couple of webcasts about how to use Visual Studio and/or .NET, fill out evaluation forms, and they'll send you a copy of VS 2005 Std (as it's a physical copy, you'll have to pay shipping):

Does that apply for international shipping as well, or is it (as usually) only for people in the .us?

See, if you just let us conquer Europe, you would qualify for these deals.  :P

nite_monkey: that's the Express edition, though... the other is non-express standard.

Oh :)

Yes, it's a very good edition for newbies, and people who are a bit further than newbies - no doubt about that! Heck, it's a very good edition for  everybody :)
