Quick question. Does the current version of Visual Studio 2008 Express include Silverlight or does it still need to be downloaded separately? I thought I read somewhere that it now includes silverlight, but I've done a ton of searching and I can't find info confirming or denying that. Also, if I was to begin programming silverilght, would I choose Visual Studio Basic, C#, C++ or Web Development version of 2008 Express?

I had to download it separately; I still had to download it separately even when SL3 came out. And according to the Silverlight: Get Started Page you still need to download the tools if you have Visual Studio.

Doesn't appear to come with it... see link above.

You can choose any .NET language. I chose C# since I thought it'd give me an opportunity to learn C#. Good luck.
Edit: Also, there's lots of example code on the 'net written in C#.
Edit2: Forgot to say that I use Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2008 Express as the IDE to make silverlight apps.

Also, decent tutorial, and Mike Snow's Silverlight Blog -- he also wrote a SL game programming book, which I did not read yet.
