5.0 out of 5 stars Great for all Microsoft developers -- Even better for emerging platforms, September 23, 2007
This review is from: MSDN Magazine (Magazine)
I have subscribed to MSDN Magazine for years now, and it really is quite good. Unlike most Microsoft publications, it is not "sales-pitchy" in that the articles are usually applicable to resolving common development issues, and there is very little subliminal verbiage geared toward buying other MS products that you don't need.

One thing to note is that they are very big on emerging technologies. This has its pros and cons...for example, they had tons of Visual Studio 2005 articles well before it was released, so it's nice to know how to use what's coming down the pike. And now (Sept 2007), there are a lot of Orcas (VS 2008) articles.

However, there is usually a large gap between when a platform is released and when you actually use those articles most likely won't be useful to you until you actually have a reason to use it (i.e. when you employer adopts it). I often find that the most useful articles were written a year or two before I need it... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Serious MS developers need this, September 29, 2005
wiredweird "wiredweird" (Earth, or somewhere nearby) - See all my reviews
This review is from: MSDN Magazine (Magazine)
People building serious MS apps, the kind where you have to figure out just what "volatile" really means, must subscribe. This is the map to the world they live in. There are lots of ads, covering just about every add-in, add-on, API, component, and service you can imagine, plus some. Do you need to know the difference between clusters, multiprocessor board, multicore, hardware multithreading, and application multithreading? You need this. UI, I18N, .NET, COM compatibility - sooner or later, it's all here.

However, not all of us work as MS app developers. If you live outside that world, you'll find just about nothing of interest.
