Outdated News - Exclusively on Economic Times

While checking the RSS feeds of EconomicTimes.com I came across this article: "MS Launches free tool for students" dated May 18 2006. The article mentions that Visual Studio 2005 Express is now free for students.

there are two factual errors in this reporting:
  1. the tool is free for everyone who wants to use it. The tool is not only focussed on students but also coding enthusiasts for whom recently there was a Maker Fair also organised.
  2. this tool has been free since the annoucement on April 19 2006. This blog covered the story: http://abhishekkant.blogspot.com/2006/04/visual-studio-express-is-free.html
Journalists, please get the facts right!
