To follow on from the MSDN piece, another question I get regularly is what is the difference between MSDN and TechNet, are they the same in any way?
The software provided with an MSDN Subscription is for design, development, testing, and demonstration of applications in a non-production environment, which we have already covered off.
The software provided with TechNet Plus subscriptions is for evaluation purposes only.
Both MSDN and TechNet Plus include Managed Newsgroups, Online Concierge, and Technical Support Incidents.
- TechNet Plus subscriptions also include eLearning and other resources for IT Professionals.
- MSDN Premium and TechNet Plus contain roughly the same software titles, though TechNet Plus does not include any Visual Studio or Expression products.
