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.

Yep, just use qt creator.

Visual C++ is a terrible IDE anyway, and Qt is a much better toolkit than microsoft ever managed to make (I've used MFC, windows forms and WPF, and they're all shit in a way or another)

No big loss.
