What's the difference between, Visual studio 2008 Professional and Express edition? I originally had the Professional one, but opted for the express edition because for some reason i couldn't use darkGDK on the Professional version, and just wondering their differences.

Express doesn't have all the flair.
-No plugins (no Visual Assist X or ViEMU)
-No profiler tools (only in Professional:Team Edition)
-Can't replace the compiler (for instance Intel compiler is a common replacement)
-Can't integrate with other tools (mostly due to lacking plugin support).

iirc you can't commercially release applications developed with express.

Microsoft has a full comparison of the different editions on their website as well.
