    Can anyone help explain (or point me in the right direction) the differences between Visual Studio .NET 2005 Professional and Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition?

    In other words, what distinguishes the ".net" between these two versions? I have always used the free express versions that you download from microsoft, but I can get 2005 pro from our department. The VS 2005 Pro is a download (free) and the VS .NET 2005 Pro is not downloadable and has a $20 s/h charge to get the DVD sent to you.

    Thanks!

    .NET is a single language.
    Visual studio PRO is a complete enviroment with .NET,ASP,visual basic,C++,C sharp
    and so on.

    Wow...so it looks like the free download of VS 2005 Pro is the obvious choice and saves me a s/h fee. Thanks
