One correction above - the "launch" date is in Feb.  The release date for Visual Studio and .NET 3.5 will be before that.

I hope they make that one - it's a Leap Year!

They'll have to wait another 4 years to get it right..

Hi Rob,

We don't have a formal date we are talking about publically just yet (partly because we want to also gauge feedback on Beta2).  

Note that once the product is released, all MSDN subscribers will be able to download it.  This will happen before the launch event.

Microsoft often will tour with a large Launch, and show participants many of the great new things about the product(s), and of course, of particular interest will often offer free complete copies of these products. Visual Studio 2008? Oh yeah!
