While looking into purchasing MSDN licenses for a client here’s what I found:

For the US:


Now when you change the drop down from US to Australia we get these prices (given
that $AUD 1 = (approx) $USD 1

So for e.g. take a MSDN – VS.NET Test.

Aussie Dollar = $3,460   US= $2,170 which
equates to $AUD 1 = $USD 0.627

this is what happens when living in a 3rd world country. –
absolutely outrageous.
