Visual Studio 2010 Licensing

We’ve seen the prices for Visual Studio 2010 but what about licensing?  If you’re interested in the finer details of how Visual Studio 2010 is licensed, then check out the Visual Studio 2010 Licensing Whitepaper (available in PDF and XPS formats).

This is a 33-page document covering the following areas of Visual Studio 2010:

  • How to Buy
  • Visual Studio 2010 Client Edition and MSDN Subscription Licensing
  • Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 Licensing
  • Lab Management
  • Load Testing
  • IntelliTrace

I wish it didn’t take 33 pages to explain product licensing but at least there’s a document :-)
