Folks with MSDN Subscriber licenses going to grab the latest version of VS2010 may wonder ‘Where is Team System? Team Suite?  Team Developer?  Team Architect?’

They are gone!  Does that mean that MS is getting out of the ALM toolset market?  Or does it mean that the ‘Team’ stuff is being released later?

The answer is NEITHER.  The branding, naming and licensing of Visual Studio is changing for the 2010 version.  The ‘Team System’ branding is being dropped.  What ‘used’ to be the ‘Team’ client products are now being rebranded as Visual Studio Premium and Visual Studio Ultimate.

Team Foundation Server is still there (and is now actually available in 2 versions, a Basics version and the Full version).  There is good news on this front.  TFS is now INCLUDED in MSDN Subscriber licenses.  And MSDN Subscribers also get a TFS CAL.

So, if your team has MSDN subscriptions, you now have everything you need to use Team Foundation Server within your team.
