Russian release of Visual Studio 2008, NETFX 3.5, and the VS 2008 MSDN Library!

Russian VS 2008

I am very pleased to announce that we have added Russian to the list of localized Visual Studio releases.This is a particularly exciting release as it illustrates what a great partnership Microsoft has built up with the local developer community and academia in Russia. It is remarkable that this all started as a community localization project, first highlighted by the private Express LangPack Beta release that went out to our MVPs and a partner university in Russia at the end of last year. 
This is a showcase for how a community driven project led into a full grown product release.
