If you are an MSDN subscriber you can now download Visual Studio 2010 Release Candidate as well as the TFS 2010 Release Candidate. You can read Brian Hurry's post about the release. Here are some key dates, if you are an MSDN subscriber you can get it now, and if not then you will have to wait until Feb 10. Still no word on when the RTM will ship, but hopefully it will be soon so that more organizations will begin adopting it and we can leave VS 2008 in the dust. Since the Visual Studio 2010 Launch is on April 12, 2010 it should be just around the corner. You should be aware that the launch date doesn't always equal the release date. Launch date is set by marketing to start the launch events, but the RTM date can vary, but will typically be in that same ball park.
