Purchasing Visual Studio 2005 (and most everything else) for $375!
If you don't already have an MSDN subscription or if you need to renew soon, I HIGHLY recommend checking out the Microsoft Empower program:
This is the deal of the century. For just $375 (this is NOT a typo), you get: up to five operating system licenses as well as Microsoft Office (Premium or Developer Editions), licenses for Windows Server 2003, Exchange Server, SQL Server, Office SharePoint Portal Server, one MSDN Universal subscription with five user licenses which includes Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition, as well as technical support and 10 hours of ISV Advisory Service. In order to qualify for this program you must sign up as Microsoft's lowest Partner level (a real breeze) Again, check the above link for details and requirements.
