The moment we've all been waiting for: Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 hits the streets so get it now
This one has a go-live license associated with it which means that the team are confident about the quality of the product and also about the final feature set. Apparently, you will be able to go smoothly from this version to the RTM version later this year. All changes between this one and the RTM version will be documented, they say. What I can tell you from personal experience is that this build is very solid and has not malfunctioned on me once in the last X days that I've been running it.
You have no reason to wait any longer, go download it and start using it for your existing v2.0/v3.0 projects
and later consider taking advantage of the new v3.5
features. Remember, VS2008 has everything in the box
