0) When I go to the Subscriber Download page, there are HUNDREDS or items listed for download, but each and every one is grayed out. Being a subscriber, and being on the *Subscriber* Downloads page, this baffles me. I have a MSDN subscription. I am entitled to a a limited subset of the items available, yet I can't download them from the main Subscriber Downloads page. I am forced to go to the Expression Pro subscriber site and download from there. This makes no sense at all to me.
1) There are various items that can be downloaded without having a MSDN subscription. They're listed on the main MSDN Subscriber Downloads site, but I can't download them. So, where do you think I would look next? That's right - the Expression Pro Subscriber Downloads page. But gadzooks! Those same items that were listed on the main downloads page aren't listed on the Expression Pro download page. A google search and a dozen mouse clicks later, I've found a place where I could download it without that worthless WebPlatform Installer thing getting in the way.
It seems to me that the MSDN site could be made more convenient and usable for the subscribers.
