    Purchase a license for VS 2019

    Where do you all purchase VS 2019? Seems there is even monthly subscriptions, if I'm understanding what's going on here!

    TIA!

    Do you need to buy a license? I believe that the Community Edition is free for teams of up to five developers. If your company needs more licenses than that then you do indeed need to buy them.

    Also note that VS2022 is coming soon. It's currently in preview 2.1

    I was concerned the CE version would be missing features. Is it complete? Or at least enough? Otherwise I was considering the Standalone License at $499.

    I installed the ENTERPRISE version for trial - I guess that needs to be removed and replaced with PROF before I continue.

    It is complete. It really comes down to the size of the organisation and the size of the team. It's not like the old Express Editions, which were significantly stripped down. Even major extensions like ReSharper are supported.
