The Blip in the Noise

October 2005 - Posts

Holy smokes, it finally happened - VS2005 on MSDN Subscriber Downloads
That's right, VS2005 has been posted for download. That groaning sound you hear is the MS servers being crushed under the load of too many downloads. So far Pro and Standard versions are up, as well as something called "Team Suite Trial Edition". Huh? Also, they've only posted the CD images - I'm hoping for DVD images soon.

Unfortunately, I'm just getting errors when I try to download it right now.

Update - It seems that which media you see depends on which server you hit. I went back in again, and the CD version was gone and the DVD version was there. I was able to successfully kick off a DVD download, and it's chugging along. Should be done downloading sometime next month. ;)
