    Question what's the newest version of Visual Studio

    I have Visual Studio 2005, is there a newer version. And what does it have compared to this version?

    Edit :
    Sorry about that, it may seem like i'm posting just to to have many posts. But it's not true, i do it when i truly want to say something.
    And i hate those kind of persons who are always counting their posts, i'm not one of them ( as you can see only 356 )

    I think it's the command-line tools or something. It's the Express edition anyway, whatever that means. (No, I haven't installed it.)

    I've heard it's okay, but Dev-C++ is often recommended too. It's what I use. http://bloodshed.net/devcpp.html

    The 2005 express edition is a full IDE. You have to download the platform SDK separately (hence the smaller download size). There are some features it doesn't support, so if you already have 2003, then you might want to stick with that. Compared to Dev-C++, though it is worth it to at least download and try out.

    Originally, the free download was only supposed to be available for a year. It seems like it has been more than a year, but I don't know if they turned off the free download.

    MSVC 2005 Express gets you the whole IDE, not just the command-line tools. The default download is 13.5MB because it's a web installer. If you dig around the download page a bit, you'll find you can download an ISO.
