Wow, what did you do, buy an MSDN Universal license for each developer?

That get's you the developer tools, yes (the enterprise versions even),
but it also gets you every OS (workstation and server), every Office
version, Visio, all the servers (SQL, Exchange, Content, Speech, SMS,
etc.), the applications (Navision, Great Plains, etc.) and a bunch of
other stuff. Basically you get everything MS makes that doesn't come
from the entertainment side of the business (no games <FROWN>). 

Keep in mind, .NET itself is FREE! You can download the runtime and the
SDK including compilers from MS for free. If you want a decent IDE you
can get one of those for free too (see WebMatrix) -- and I'd be
surprised if someone hasn't built a .NET view for Eclipse. 

A "standard" developer would want to run VS.NET Professional, which
IIRC, costs ~600.

MSDN License.  I am not a .NET developer so I didn't know what else to
call them except for "plugins" :-P  Sorry for the confusion.  I have
only seen the numbers and have a small understanding of what is
included.  All I know is that when we did a couple of Java projects, we
didn't have to buy anything for our developers unless we felt EJB's were
in order.

How in the world do you get $3000 for MS's IDE? What "supporting
plugins" are you adding here?
