Heroes Happen Here: Get Free Copies of Microsoft Windows Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008, and SQL Server 2008

IT professionals will love this: Microsoft is giving free copies of Windows Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008, and SQL Server 2008 to anyone attending its "Heroes Happen Here" launch events. The events will take place across the US, first starting in Los Angeles on February 27, 2008.

For those who don't know, Windows Server 2008 is an operating system that incorporates the changes in Windows Vista, Visual Studio lets you develop applications, and SQL Server is a relational database management system.

If you've only used free open-source solutions before, this is a good opportunity to compare and contrast with paid software (for free).

Free copies? Microsoft? Anything for free?
Where R U from to believe in fairy tails?

This is the trial hero’s event.
No “WOW”s during demo, couple hiccups while showing “working” samples and nothing new that is not already implemented by other vendors.
I've attended it in Nashville. No reserved parking spaces, itty-bitty snack box and.... it was even not enough original boxes for everybody, they had to provide some extra from other vendor. It seems like Microsoft does not know how to count number of registered guests using calculators….

And about "free" software... well it is all TRIAL except VS Standard edition – but I didn’t try to install studio yet.
