Is there a FREE version of C# I can download? If I have version 2.0 of the .NET Framework...does that mean I already have it? I just installed Visual C++ Express 2005, which I know is free. Is there a similar thing for C#? Thanks! Tom

Yes, there's also a Visual C# 2005 Express Edition; you should be able to find it at the same place you got MSVC from.

There's also Mono, which includes:

Quote:
* A Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) virtual machine that contains a class loader, Just-in-time compiler, and a garbage collecting runtime.

* A class library that can work with any language which works on the CLR. Both .NET compatible class libraries as well as Mono-provided class libraries are included.

* A compiler for the C# language.

Cool, but I am on a Windows OS. That excludes me from Mono, right?
