And Visual Studio 2013 has the ability to be installed in addition to previous versions of Visual Studio, or installed right on top of previous version. Of course all active MSDN subscribers can just download Visual Studio 2013 directly from their MSDN Subscriber Downloads page. Read all the details right here.
