Re: [Software] Visual Studio 2010 MSDN is licensed per user for as many devices as that person needs to install on for dev and testing. If a dev box is mixed-use (work other than dev) then the base OS must be separately licensed, not one out of the MSDN pack. OTOH you can load an MSDN OS into as many pure dev/test VMs as you want. If you have Office in the pack you can install one copy of it for whatever you want to do with it.
My setup is a base VM with just the OS and VS that I keep on a DVD and then I clone that for projects. I also have a copy of VS on a real machine that I can use for quick and dirty stuff.
I've seen Pro w/MSDN on Amazon in the $800 range. You can probably score Pro without MSDN for $350-$400 on Amazon as well.
Keep in mind that 2012 RCs are out.
