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.

Yes there is nothing stopping you from using it, but the primary target for Express is learning and hobbyists.

I have made small commercial websites using Express and you can certainly make useful things, but you are missing out on some of the more useful aspects of Visual Studio.
