Default Availability of VS.NET 2005

Hi - Does anyone know when I can buy the VS.NET 2005. It's priced already but I don't think it is shipping yet.
Thanks- Joe

You are correct. Not shipping yet. There will be a beta this month (beta 2) but final release is slated for "second half of 2005" without any more specific details than that from Microsoft.

Hi Thanks again for the info. I am ordering the MSDN VS.NET Pro subscription now. I presently have the VS.NET 2002 installed. The MSDN will ship the VS 2003 media. Would you skip that and just download VS.NET 2005 beta 2 instead and just wait for the shipped version media ?

All depends on what you want to do

VS 2003 wont code against the .NET Framework 2.0 just like VS 2005 won't code/compile against .NET Framework 1.1

So if you are looking to code right now, then Studio 2003 would do that.... if you are looking to jump into the new Beta stuff, then wait

Both Studio2003 and Studio2005 will run side by side
