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).
