More than anything else, its that you can sell and distribute programs made with the standard version. You can't do that with the express version.

Edit- I was completly wrong, having read the FAQ, you can indeed use it for commercial apps.

Actually, I am almost positive you can sell and distribute with both versions. I could be wrong, but I am almost SURE I'm not.

That's what I thought. Besides, even if you could't you could just compile your code with a Non-MS compiler and there would be nothing that could be done about it.

I would recommend you download it, but if you really don't want to, check out MinGW. Borland also has a free C++ compiler that is worth looking into.
