Visual Studio 2008 Launch

Visual Studio 2008, Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 (beta) will all be launched in the US on Wednesday 27th February 2008 and in the UK on Wednesday 19th March 2008. Of course, a Launch date is not the same as a Release date (Visual Studio 2008 has already been released to MSDN subscribers): the Launch date is simply the marketing and publicity focal point.

The UK Launch will be held at the ICC in Birmingham and will be free to the first 1500-2000 people to sign up (starting sometime in December). The event will use the "TechEd format" and is expected to contain more tech content and less marketing content.

If you don’t have an MSDN subscription you can still download the Visual Studio 2008 90 day trial which will last you through until the release date for non-MSDN subscribers.
