MSDNAA - Microsoft softare download question!

So apparently I have access to MSDNAA and I have a list of software I have access to. What I wanted to knw is what software would be beneficial to me.

I need project. If I get XP pro, can I just do a reinstall on my desktop to then make it a valid installation? I just have no idea what Visio, Visual Studio, One Note and the MSDN library are. I will go to Microsoft and look around, but if somebody can give me a quick "usefulness" synopsis, that would be great.

Yes, any of these products such as XP Pro can be installed on your computer as long as other people haven't used the licenses.

Generally, if you don't know what the software is it won't do you any good.

Check if you have MapPoint available with your subscription. That might be useful.

That was the list.
I was thinking about Visio, to draw schematics and such, although I have AutoCAD, which I am more familiar with.

OneNote I am unsure about, since I really don't understand the usefulness of organizing my notes and documents, but maybe it will be useful for grad school.

And I may get Visual Studio 6 because it appears to hve several programming languages it may be useful to have, although I don't program much. Version 6 doesn't have the libraries, but again, if I don't know what they are, I don't know the usefulness.

Maybe he's referring to dot net framework support?

Don't bother with Visual Studio 6. Unless you're maintaining old software it's essentially obsolete. Get Visual Studio 2005 or Visual Studio .NET 2003 instead.

Oh, for some reason I was thinking that version 6 was 2006. I will get 2005 then.
Thanks
