    Simple, yet powerful entrypoint professional development tool

    With the Visual Studio 2005 Express editions, users can:

    • Learn how to program using a streamlined, lightweight development environment with built in tutorial content
    • Evaluate the .NET Framework for Windows and Web development
    • Create fun and interesting applications for their personal enjoyment or to share with their friends
    The Express products consist of:
    Each Express product is:
    • Lightweight, under 40MB including "Getting Started" documentation
    • Easy to use, with only the necessary features to help hobbyists, enthusiasts, and students learn and evaluate programming for Windows
    • Easy to learn, with Starter Kits, documentation, and more geared towards helping the hobbyist, enthusiast, or student learn the fundamentals of programming for Windows

    You can Download the Visual Studio Express Beta 2 edition and get your free activation key when you register your product (other-wise its a free 30 day full function demo beta). From what I know there is no expiration date on this beta.

    It also includes 3 free E-books to help you out!

    Happy Coding ;)

    I've been toying with the Express ASP.NET a bit, a neat tool. SQL Express is pretty cool too.

    I haven't used any of them. We have complete Visual Studio .NET here, and my friend Duane has MSDN so I just grab the whole version of whatever I need from him.
