I was somewhat shocked when I saw the sticker price for an MSDN account. It was a sizeable amount of money that is for sure. Is it worth it though? Dunno really. It depends on your needs I suppose. If it is just to get access to pretty much all of their products then I suppose it is. Then again though you could simply get an Action Pack as they call it. I am a little torn over what to do actually. Yes, I can write off a certain amount of the cost, but still it is pricey.
