    The standard edition does not have the optimiser or profiler.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Introductory Edition probably omits plenty of useful features that Standard has. This is speculation, but it makes sense since the Standard Edition lacks critical features that more "professional" editions have...like optimization.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Introductory also has completly different licensing terms. For example, you cannot legally distribute apps created with this edition. Or maybe not charge for them.
    All the buzzt!
