Windows 7 SP1 download links go live for TechNet, MSDN users

Windows 7 SP1 download links are now live for MSDN and TechNet subscribers, so head to your downloads page and grab the updated ISOs. Public availability will follow on February 22nd, and end users will be able to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 via Windows Update or download an installer.

Office 2010 RTM now available for download by Technet, MSDN subscribers

While you won't be seeing it on retail shelves just yet, Microsoft has flicked the Office 2010 switch on MSDN and Technet. This morning, the beta version was finally replaced with the RTM and both 32 and 64-bit downloads are now available.

Microsoft will make APIs and other information available for 6 "high-volume" products: Windows Vista Windows Server...

MSDN Library is now a free download!

Microsoft has released the MSDN library as three ISO images you can download and burn. Previously this was only available to developers who subscribed to the MSDN service. The May 2006 edition is out right now, and Rob Caron has said that future editions will also be available as they are released.
