Visual Studio Team Explorer Everywhere Now Available for Free



Visual Studio Team Explorer Everywhere 2010 BoxThe cross-platform (Windows, Linux, and Apple Mac OS) Eclipse-based Team Explorer, Visual Studio Team Explorer Everywhere, is now available without any costs!  The free version will continue to not include a TFS Client Access License (CAL) so just be sure you are covered elsewhere for CALs if you happen to need one in your environment!

It’s really great news for all those software engineers not using Visual Studio for building applications or for those using Linux or Mac OS and want to interact with the rest of the software engineering teams using Team Foundation Server.
