Express is a good thing. Really.

Some others (including one of my business partners and the causticTech) seem to think that the Express flavors of the VS2k5 environment need some kind of warnings against use in production.

Without the Empower ISV program (which requires that you agree to make a commercial endeavor to get your application logo certified), the Express line looks like a good way for people with a dayjob to get the VS environment in a fully licensed fashion to develop their business ideas at home, while hunting for the all-holy first customer.

I know I sure as hell don't want "you're not a programmer, you're an idiot" messages popping up in my IDE, and my wife will probably use the Express Web Developer tool on her laptop for two reasons: it's a dinky laptop (4 gig drive). I will use the Express tools because I can't afford to replace my desktop at the moment, and so I can't afford the space for a full up install of VS.NET2k5B1 and VS.NET2k3. OTOH, I'm looking forward to redoing my desktop after running on the same (miraculously stable) install of Win2K for the past 5 years...

I know that if I was teaching computer goo at a Boy Scout Explorers Post or in a school, I'd be flipped-out angry if it popped up "you're not a real programmer" messages.

I know that if the compiler refused to generate certain types of DLLs or EXEs that were the "norm" for the environment I was executing on because of the version of the product I had, I'd go looking for an "unlocked" tool and find one.

I know that the best thing for Microsoft is to have as many developers as possible in love with their platform from the front end to the back. This means the Express SKUs to make their platform approachable and easy to learn...

You can teach someone to program in most modern languages in a few hours.

Teaching someone the art of design and the mindset to actual develop solutions instead of knowing how to turn a textbox some set of colors that it never should have been... that takes years. Most developers I know are still learning this, some more than others. I know I've got a long, long way to go compared to some people I know, or read...

"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This stock will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
