@kettch: Um... I don't think you read my post.
I said that the prices are "quite reasonable". And that "TFS and Visual Studio are both quite cheap for the value they give".
The only thing I said was too expensive was the MSDN Ultimate Subscription. At $13,299 per year (list price) it is fairly expensive.
But even that gives a lot of value. (I know, I have an Ultimate Subscription.)
I think VS Tools have a great price range. From very reasonable with many features to fairly expensive with tons of features.
One of us is not understanding the other... If it is me, let me know....
