Techies, Just read the blog post that Office 2010 was announced and giving you a heads up on it:
Our Volume License customers with active Software Assurance (SA) on these products will be one of the first to receive the 2010 set of products. They will be able to download the products in English via the Volume Licensing Service Center starting April 27. Customers without SA will be able to purchase the new products through Volume Licensing from Microsoft partners starting May 1.
So that and the release of VS2010 will mean end of April will be focussed on rebuilding my OS with all tools on it. This is also great to check with your customer who want to start using the tools ASAP.
Let’s share the tools we put on our systems a la Scott Hanselman’s tool List. Only let’s separate out these tools for an Office 2010 and VS 2010 developer desktop and the same fro an IT-Pro desktop. Let’s not forget we need to maintain legacy as well!
Looking forward to your tool chest, entries I will add comments as I collect my tool chest.
