Visual Studio Express 2005 Beta 2 Released

If anybody wants to have a go at developing with the .Net 2 Framework. i.e the now and future of programming, then you can get a free beta copy of the Express edition of Microsoft's Visual Studio Here. The Express editions are designed as cheaper one language alternatives to Visual Studio Standard edition and will probably retail at $50. Which will be ideal for students and anybody wanting to pickup programming as a hobby (those people don't actually exist yet).

I have been developing with Beta1 for a while now and I only downloaded it to see what it looked like, but it is so much better that I have ditched my £80 copy of 2003 Standard.
