Visual Studio Express

After making available for free the Visual C++ Toolkit which includes the complete optimizing C++ compiler from Visual C++ Professional, now MS is offering free versions of its Visual Studio tools, called Visual Studio Express. The beta versions are available for download, but the FAQ says they haven't decided yet about pricing for the final versions.

Competition ?

Maybe they need to promote C# more, seeing that Java has good free development tools (Eclipse comes to mind).
