Microsoft "A few weeks ago, we shared our plans for the Express editions of Visual Studio 2012. As we've worked to deliver the best experience with Visual Studio for our platforms with Windows 8, Windows Phone, and for Web and Windows Azure, we heard from our community that developers want to have for Windows desktop development the same great experience and access to the latest Visual Studio 2012 features at the Express level. Today, I'm happy to announce that we will add Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Desktop to the Visual Studio 2012 family. This will bring to the Visual Studio Express family significant new capabilities that we've made available in Visual Studio 2012 for building great desktop applications."

IBM about linux love? I never made that association.

Many people do, because IBM does contribute a lot to kernel development.

But like any company, they do it, because they want Linux to run properly on the servers they sell, that is all.

If it's all about the money in big companies, doesn't that make them evil?

Depends on one thinks about getting money. Anyway, when a company shows some geek love, by releasing open source stuff, that does not make them automatic good.
