I have Visual Studio Express 2005 and 2008. Just wondering if there was anything better out there. Gotta be free though, no demos, shareware, adware, etc. Thanks! - Deathbliss

VS Express 2008. Until 2010 ships in April, most likely.


My vote here. 2010beta2 is fairly stable if you want to look at the new stuff.

There'll also be a public Visual Studio 2010 RC this month.

Visual C# Express 2008, the Visual Studio 2010 beta/RC, or if you're a student Visual Studio 2008 through Dreamspark.

Three choices: VS 2008 Express, SharpDevelop and MonoDevelop. The latter is cross-platform, meaning you can use the same environment to develop on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Since all projects use the same project format, just try all three and see which one you like best.

Moreover, I'd recommend against VS 2010 betas on a production system, because they are a pain to uninstall/upgrade and can wreak havoc on your system (speaking from experience). Just wait for the final in March.

Final in march, eh? Does that mean Microsoft will be doing a round of product launch events at various locations? I hope so...
