Coming to one of the Canadian Launch events? If so, you’ll get a Special Edition copies of Visual Studio 2005 and SQL Server 2005 for free! According to Mark Relph, these are not trial versions. These are fully functional non-evaluation versions of the products. I’m not sure which SKU they will be distributing, but even full versions of the Express SKU will be cool. (Can anyone confirm which SKU will be distributed?) If you haven’t signed up yet, there’s still space left in some of the cities. (Calgary and a few others have opened up waiting lists.) Hope to see you at the launch!

EDIT: Mark Relph just posted these pics of the Special Edition. Looks like Launch attendees will be receiving Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition and SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition. Cool!!!
