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.

I appreciate the restrictions been lifted, but the Visual Studio Express is soo cut down, you can make a small e-commerce website out of it.

It is still meant for learning and hobbyists.
