In addition also the .NET Framework 3.5 is available as standalone download.
And while we are talking about VS2008 related downloads here are a few others I think are quite useful:
- Soma, Carol Grojean, Jeff Beehler announce the release of Visual Studio 2008 RTM (WMV)
- Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5 Training Kit, 120Mb with labs, demos and PPTs
- VS2008 samples, if you only are interested in LINQ, LINQ to SQL, and the changes from VS2005 to VS2008
And as usual ScottGu just wrote a Quick Tour of the New Features of VS2008 and .NET 3.5.
And now, waiting for my download to complete.
