* Subscription contents vary by purchased product.
A couple things to note:
- TFS 2010 and a TFS 2010 CAL are included with every MSDN subscription
- The above prices are suggested list price. Companies buying development tools licenses usually go through volume licensing which usually result in lower prices.
