VS2008 and VS2010 Virtual Machine Images

VSTS virtual machines are all updated with seven virtaul images new expiration dates.

First off, the new expiration date is January 31, 2011.

You can still download them from the following location. Here are the links

Each image contains Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate Beta 2, Team Foundation Server 2010 Beta 2, and the various agents used for data collection. In addition, there’s some sample code and data.

These images do not contain antivirus so be careful and use Shared NAT or one of the many other options to get network access without causing problems.
