I received my first MSDN shipment yesterday from the subscription that I was awarded for being a Finalist in the Connected Systems Developer Competition.

I've been in charge of receiving the MSDN subscription media for my branch, which we receive as being part of the Microsoft Certified Partner program. These always came on CD, because all of our servers have CD-ROM drives (not a one has a DVD drive).

But, my personal subscription is on DVD. I'm amazed at how many products are crammed onto each disk, and by how much smaller the shipments are when compared to the number of CD's that we would normally receive at a time.

This comes as a relief to me, because I don't know what I would do with hundreds of CDs in my house (it's going to be bad enough keeping track of scores of DVDs!)
