Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 Is Available

Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 is available from MSDN now. It will be made generally available on the 21st October. A comprehensive “how-to” around where to get it, how to install it and other useful information has been published by Brian Keller.

I’m now running Team Foundation Server 2010 natively on my Windows 7 laptop in a Basic configuration, without SQL Server or SharePoint installed, and it’s looking great. I’m really enjoying not having to have a server operating system (running in a virtual machine) just to work with my own team projects. Fantastic for small teams, or make the most of the full version with SQL Server and WSS/MOSS.
