It is Today - 1st Nov 2007
You would be aware of the expiring of VS 2008 Beta 2 VPCs today. If you have watching the VS Developer Center, you would have noticed the new updates on this. Jeff has mentioned in his blog about what happens with the existing VPC and mentions the 3 alternatives going forward
- Upgrade the base OS with valid license
- download the newly published VPC images from here
- continue to work with the existing VPC and keep rebooting every 1-2 hrs.
Since downloading the 8 files, required for the VPC (not including the base image), took quite a bit of time for me, I will continue to use the existing VPC as is, as I can live with the reboot requirements for now.
