Resources and excitements are available for you in Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1. Try this out from today at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=151799. There are a bunch of resources available for you there apart from the bits.
I have installed it with my museum PC (which hold Visual Studio 6, Visual Studio.NET 2003, Visual Studio.NET 2005, Visual Studio.NET 2008). This version runs without any trouble. But ideally you should be doing it in VPC else use the machine which is not directly associated to production.
