I thought this was pretty cool: Microsoft recently released visual studio express free: http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/default.aspx

Apparently it will be a free download for a year (software won't expire though).

Dammit. It requires WinXP SP2 to install which will mess up my PC.

Just wondering is PS Pro made by Microsoft? If its not it shouldnt be long before they release something to compete with or even beat adobe.

The 1 year free makes it really worth a download 30 day crap makes me not even wanna bother with it unless I really am interested in it.

They are even offering SQL Server 2005 Express, which is a free version of the SQL Server database!
I have the full VS.NET but I downloaded VB Express to see how it works, it is very cool too.
