I almost forgot to add one more thing. The file will be downloaded with the extension PL. Just rename the extension PDF.

Guess what? This is a 1693 page e-book! Just for the fun of it I googled Amazon for its price - they are selling for $$44.09 instead of $69.99. Go grab one for yourself NOW before M$ change its mind.

Thanks XPUser. I just downloaded my copy. Looking at the size of it I guess I will not be printing this one.

You're welcome. Don't print the book - save the trees :-)

There's another e-book (link below) that M$ Learning wants to give away for free. At Amazon the list price is $13.59 as opposite to the market price $19.99. The e-book does not download as a file; rather it will load into your PDF engine (mine is FoxIt Reader) that you can then save it as a file.

M$ Visual C# 2008 Express Edition: Build a Program Now!

Enjoy :-)

thanks for that, the first one downloaded as a .pdf file, the second one did the same (trying to use the same name), but all seems well & good - easy if you already have a hotmail account hanging around, otherwise you need to create one.

Update -

The free e-book entitled Windows Vista Resource Kit, Second Edition is no longer offered.

You can still get (until April 20, 2009) M$ Visual C# 2008 Express Edition: Build a Program Now! from the link given above, as well as Windows Small Business Server 2008 Administrator’s Companion by Charlie Russel and Sharon Crawford from this LINK. As usual you will need to have a Windows Live ID to download it.

Windows Vista Resource Kit, 2nd Edition Updated for Service Pack 1, is not new to download. I had downloaded it on March 3rd,2009.

You see, MS is not M$ as most people think.

I will not sign up for a Hotmail account just to get a book.

They changed the e-mail links at MSNBC requiring you to have a Hotmail account to e-mail news people on their shows.

They want those e-mails for a reason. And I believe the book is a another ploy to get them.

Can't see the problem in getting a Hotmail account, you don't have to give your real postcode or another alternative e-mail. I only ever use mine for instances like this and if there sites that require an e-mail address but you don't want to use any of your own.

seawatch1,

Nothing is free. You have to trade something for some other thing. The important thing is, never trade your soul for anything.
