Visual Studio 2003 , issue with differences between Developer and Architect editions.

1) Does Visual Studio 2003 Enterprize Architect(VSEA) have everything that Visual Studio  2003 Enterprize Developer has?

2) If so, then how come VSEA comes on only 3 CD's? At my last company the old version of VSEA came on 7 CD's ?
So what's the deal with VSEA? Have some of my Co-workers lost the other CD's or something or have they compressed this edition?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, Enterprise Architect includes all the features of all other editions. There's a good chance the other CDs were the MSDN Library CDs, which was 3 CDs as of October 2003.
