Hi,<BR><BR>at the moment I'm writing all my ASP.NET in a standard text editor (I'd prefer to use VS.NET but can't afford it at the moment). However, looking round amazon.co.uk one day I came across "Visual C#.NET" in their software section which costs considerably less than VS.NET (it's about £85 as opposed to about £750 for VS.NET Pro - the link is http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000060MR9/qid=1019149383/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_3_1/202-7521458-3855861 ). However, the description isn't very.... well, descriptive.<BR><BR>Does anyone know EXACTLY what this is? Is it VS.NET restricted to one language? Are there any features missing? (its full title includes the word "standard" rather than "professional" - does this imply anything, or is it simply inconsistent wording?) Will I be able to write full Windows apps (with DB interaction etc.) or are there any omissions that will restrict me in this area?<BR><BR>As well as improving productivity, I'll need VS.NET in the future as I'll be taking MCSD exams - will this "cut-down" version be sufficient for the task of learning for these exams?<BR><BR>I've hunted 'round the MS site with no joy, and the Amazon blurb hasn't answered all my questions. I'd appreciate any info anyone may have.<BR><BR>Thanks in advance,<BR>Nick.
