Visual Studio 2005 Launch Date

For those of you who haven’t heard yet, we announced at Tech-Ed this morning that Visual Studio 2005, SQL Server 2005, and BizTalk Server 2006 will all launch the week of November 7th. Sounds like November should be a very busy and exciting month for developers, and even moreso for those of us who are also gamers (since the XBOX 360 is slated to be released around Thanksgiving).

    So close to the end of the year… VS and SQL should be re-versioned "2006"…

    That is tooooooooo late! We have some projects coming down the pipe and I thought I could push our management to adopt the Beta version saying that Whidbey would be released in September.

    Do you know when the product will support a forward migration path. I would like to start some pilot projects and be able to eventually move into production with the projects.
