But I dunno if Visual Studio express can run on XP Starter with the long list of constraints it comes!

If the machine has no Internet connectivity... where do I suppose that I am going to download the VisualStudioExpress? in a Windows XP full machine? in a Linux box?

Personally I think if you have to use Windows Starter then you are better off using Linux.

So is SharpDevelop (http://www.icsharpcode.net/OpenSource/SD/). It's not a bad little IDE (doesn't work on Linux, but then neither does VisualStudio).
