Check this out! If you’re a student (and your institution is down on the list – Imperial is, but I’m not sure about other places, I didn’t look too hard) you can get the following for FREE:
- Visual Studio 2008 Professional
- Windows Server 2003 Standard
- SQL Server 2005 Express
- Microsoft Expression Studio
- XNA Game Studio
- Visual Studio 2005 Professional
Buying this stuff individually would cost a fortune, this is an amazing deal, so if you’re at all interested in developer / web designer tools (or you know someone who is) this is well worth taking a gander at to see if you’re eligible.
