I've been busy enough that I haven't bothered with the huge downloads yet to get VS 2005 Beta 1 -- afterall I knew I would get it mailed to me soon enough. Finally this morning the yellow DHL truck arrived with my little package, so I eagerly opened it up. All I found inside was a piece of paper that said I would find the installation media enclosed, which I did not -- talk about vaporware. I guess I'll have to find the time to download it now afterall.
Update: Talk about customer service, someone from MS read my blog and is sending a new copy -- without me even asking. :)
