Visual Studio did what?

You are going to hear this a few hundred times over the next 24 hours, so I may as well add another me too post. Visual Studio 2005 final release is available for download for MSDN subscribers. It’s only a matter of days now before it’s officially on the shelves.

First tasks after installing will be to make sure everything which worked on the various builds (My demo laptop is still running July CTP because I got my demo working on that build and was too frightened to break it!) installs and works with the release version. And I think it’s going to be a slow download as MSDN downloads are strangely busy this evening 🙂 So what are the chances it will have finished downloading by the morning?
