    I ordered the DVD since I am not an MSDN subscriber. The charge was $0 with free shipping. Awesome!

    Scott, is there a separate Professional version coming down the line? If not, should those of us who are eventually going to use Pro get the Standard or Team System edition?

  3. Lasse says:

    Where did you find a link to order it with free shipping?



  4. Lasse says:

    Ah, im from europe I get another page when I click where im from.

    Ofcause I have to wait 7 days to order, and I bet shipping won’t be free neither. Oh well

    It is not accepting orders to Canada! It keeps saying that i entered an invalid address. When i just change the country, keeping the other details intact, it proceeds. It’s weird. Will someone look into this problem? Thanks.

    For those with invalid address.

    I’m also in canada and it give me an invalid address first with: 111 Pelhome (that not a real address it’s just for illustration) as address. I read somewhere that you need to put street in so I try with 111 Pelhome St, still invalid

    I put my address into and it give me 111 Rue Pelhome (I’m in QC) so I input 111 Rue Pelhome in the form and it accept it now I’m waiting for my copy.

    I’m also getting the Invalid Address error, in Canada also. I know the address is exactly where I am situated, so it’s not making a whole lot of sense to me.

    Ouch, I have to eat my own words, amazing enough it had free shipping here in europe (atleast denmark) also.

    So now im happy, even after waiting a week longer than you us guys 😉
