Very cool. I have a full MSDN licence (not sure which one as they keep
changing their names), which gives me 10 copies of everything outside
of MSGames for about $1k/year. ;-) In the grand scheme, this is dirt
cheap, but if you're not going to use $1k in software a year, probably
not the best approach.
So this is for home use of apps you have at work though, right John? I
assume if you leave your company you have to turn in all these
licenses since you won't have work licenses.
