Visual Studio 2005 Express - Free product

In case you missed it: While there were plenty of announcements at the launch events about benchmarks, discounts, etc, the one that I was happiest to see was that the Express editions of Visual Studio 2005 will be free of charge to download (SQL Server 2005 Express was always going to be free, but VS2005 initially was going to be chargable).

This means you can get your hands on a fully-operational version of Visual Studio 2005 for developing Windows or Web applications absolutely free of charge as long as you have an internet connection. Get it here
