I found an old copy of (legally obtained) Visual Studio 2005 Standard (it was not
used to upgrade to 2008 pro it was purchased outright for a price less
than the current upgrade pricing) and find that its the exact same price
as the 2008 Pro to upgrade and no special pricing for Standard users was
ever offered in Australia. I would love to be using a legal version of
2010 Pro but there are limits to how much I appreciate being ripped off.
