I am pondering whether to renew my MSDN subscription for my company and my personal work
I can't remember the last time I even downloaded something from MSDN and now that news hit that they are removing the Office suite from downloadable products to use for testing and development, I really am not sure how relevant it is.
I use Visual Studio and would be content with simply the Standard edition with resharper without the MSDN stuff. That's at least $900 less than the simplest MSDN subscription. I never touch the db stuff in Visual Studio as I use Enterprise Manager and I don't even touch SSRS as I use DevXPress reporting solutions.
Everything else I work with is OSS .
What do you think? What do you do? What value is there in MSDN that I am overlooking?
