For those of you that want to try out Visual Studio Team System 2008 including Team Foundation Server, without having to go through the process of installing the product, we have recently released four VPC and HyperV images for your use. The “all-up” image includes Team Foundation Server, Team Build, Team Explorer, and Team Suite while the TFS “only” version has just Team Foundation Server, Team Build, and Team Explorer.
These images are set to expire on December 31, 2009 (over a year from now) and are a replacement for the original VPC images we released last year.
- VSTS “all-up” Virtual PC/Virtual Server image (6 GB download, expands to 15 GB)
- TFS “only” Virtual PC/Virtual Server image (3 GB download, expands to 8 GB)
- VSTS “all-up” Hyper-V image (6 GB download, expands to 15 GB)
- TFS “only” Hyper-V image (3 GB download, expands to 8 GB)

Many thanks to Brian Randell for his outstanding work pulling these images together and getting them through the sometimes Byzantine release process here at MS.
