Windows For Microsoft, the traditional desktop is old news. It's on its way out, it's legacy, and the harder they claim the desktop has equal rights, the sillier it becomes. With companies, words are meaningless, it's actions that matter, and here Microsoft's actions tell the real story. The company has announced the product line-up for Visual Studio 11, and the free Express can no longer be used to create desktop applications. Message is clear.

serious developers write crossplatform code with primary development on a unix platform where coding isn't hampered by stupid build limtations and does verification testing using release only builds on the windows platform. The express edition is quite sufficient for serious development builds.
