Download Visual Studio Express Editions free including Visual Basic, Visual C#, Visual J#, Visual C++, and Visual Web Developer Express will be now be free permanently.

The Microsoft Visual Studio Express Editions are often described as Free, lightweight, easy-to-use, and easy-to-learn tools for the hobbyist, novice, and student developer.

Dan Fernandez, who is the Lead Product Manager of Visual Studio Express, announces on his blog that after April 19th, 2006, all Visual Studio 2005 Express Editions including Visual Basic, Visual C#, Visual J#, Visual C++, and Visual Web Developer Express will be free permanently. A Microsoft Press release says that all editions have been downloaded more than 5 million times.

An example of this community tool development is Microsoft and Lego created an application that enables the robotics community to use Visual Studio Express to program their LEGO MINDSTORMS robots to do specific commands, such as maneuvering around obstacles, and control them from their computer keyboard or mouse. Anyway it is great to see another free software!

    I have the Visual Studio 2003 with VB.NET, C*, C++, et al. Is there any problem downloading Visual Studio Express 2005? Do I get all the pieces with this one download, especially VB, C* and the web service? Or do I have to download VB, C* and the web service one at a time?

    Thank, JL
