VS.NET 2005 Available to download MSDN

P: n/a
Greetings,

Looks like we can download VS.NET Professional from MSDN subscriber
downloads, along with Visual SourceSafe 2005, Visio for EA 2005, and SQL 2k5
Developer.

My DSL only has 180kbps so do download the VS.NET ISO alone (3,7GB) would
take about 48 hours. SQL 2k5 is 2.7GB, that would take about 32 hours.
Obviously, it'll take a while for me to download. That said, does anyone
know when the actual DVD's will be shipped to subscribers? Perhaps it'll
arrive before the downloads complete in which case, there's no need for me
to download.
Thanks,
Shawn

Shawn,

The scheduled release date is 11/7, so I wouldn't expect it anytime
before then.

Oops, when I entered the information into the bandwidth calculator, it was
asking in terms of Kbps, not KB/sec... thus, it'll only take me about 12
hours max. That's much better.
Thanks,
