Beginning .Net development?
In the deluge of email from the last week or two from corp around VS2008 (there was lots of excited emails with information about the new product in it), I missed one about the Express suite.
The Express team have taken the Visual Studio Express site and moved it to https://microsoft.com/express.
There is also a new site for beginners on MSDN that has a heap of learning resources depending on whether you are interested in learning to develop for Windows or for the Web.
If you are a beginner (or know someone who is), you should direct them to https://msdn.microsoft.com/beginner
