I already have a Vistual Studio 2010 professional academic version on my laptop. My question is that do I need download other software? I know some software is not free and very expensive for personal use.

Assuming your laptop meets the hardware prerequisites you could download Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 (free).

Although probably not needed for that particular course you might also want to grab Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010 (32-bit|64-bit)

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Not quite.  

Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 can be installed on Windows 7 for development purposes - it is just a little more complicated as you have to manually install some of the pre-requisites and modify the installation files.
