Default Question re. VS.NET 2005 and MSDN Subscription

If I purchase the MSDN Professional subscription for VS.NET 2005 am I entitled to VS.NET 2005 when it ships(September)? The price for the MSDN Professional subscription is about 1100 dollars which is more than the 800 or so for VS.NET 2005. But without MSDN professional subscription one cannot download the VS.NET 2005 Beta 1(or Beta 2) when that becomes available. Thanks.

If I understand correctly, if you purchase MSDN today (4/6/05) you will have one year of updates and downloads. If VS.NET 2005 came out 4/7/06 you might be out of luck. However, I did hear that since VS 2005 has been pushed back so much that if you purchased a MSDN within a time frame you will get a copy.
