If you want to try out Visual Studio Team System 2008 including Team Foundation Server without having to installing everything, you can try the Visual Studio Team System VPC images. One has Team Foundation Server 2008, Team Explorer, Team Suite, Team Build, and more. You can download it from Visual Studio® Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server and Team Suite VPC Image (Trial). The other is a Team Foundation Server only. You can download that version from Visual Studio® Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server VPC Image (Trial).

Both images expire on April 1, 2008. Updated images will be posted before then.
