Hot off the presses from Somasegar, Microsoft just shipped Visual Studio 2005 and .NET Framework 2.0!!! This is a huge release and a great accomplishment for Microsoft. We haven’t seen this much goodness since .NET Framework 1.0 was released. Congratulations to everyone who has been involved in making this happen.

Grab the RTM bits while they’re still hot if you can. Microsoft Subscriber Downloads seems to be under a DDoS attack of their own making as every MSDN subscriber on the planet tries to grab the latest.
