At the event you will get to see Windows Server® 2008, Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008, and Microsoft Visual Studio® 2008 in action.  You will also get to meet with my expert as well as enjoy hands-on labs, face-to-face Q&A sessions with software experts, and other opportunities to interact with development team members.  You may want more? To say thanks for taking part of this exciting launch, you’ll take home a promotional kit with versions of all three products.  So follow the links below to get registered:

    Can you clarify which versions?  

    "take home a promotional kit with versions of

    all three products"

  2. Costin says:

    Unbelievable!

    Back here in Sydney/AU the promotional kit includes:

    – 1 year evaluation licence for Windows Server 2008 (64/32 bit)

    – SQL Server 2008 CTP 5.0

    – VS 2008 Team System 90 days evaluation

    Here’s the link so you can see for yourselves (http://www.microsoft.com/australia/heroes/event_agenda_why_attend.aspx)

    Only today after I’ve send a few emails they’ve updated their website. Just cancelled my ticket (pay $200 for eval versions that you can download anyway ?!?!?!)

  3. Matt Hester says:

    We are still waiting to hear what exactly the kits will contain, my best guess is that at the minium it will be NFR, but as soon as I l know I will post on the blog.

  4. Anonymous says:

    This is the year of launch events!!!  We have another fantastic product set launching this year

  5. Cameronk says:

    Are the promotional kits containing evaluation versions of all 3 products or full licensed versions? Thank you.

  6. Matt Hester says:

    This launch kit provides you with a special one-year evaluation license.  You agree to the licensing terms by installing or using the software. At the end of the year they would be out of compliance.

    The software is not technically timebombed.
