Visual Studio vs Visual Web Developer

Hi!
The Visual Web Developer is better than Visual Studio 2005 for web
development? All the Ajax examples are developed in Visual Web Developer.

Thanks

I think you're confusing the products here. Visual Web Developer IS the web
design portion of Visual Studio. Visual Studio includes a number of
components, Visual C#, Visual C++, Visual Web Developer. Sometimes you'll
see references to Visual Web Developer Express which is the free version of
Visual Web Developer and lacks some of the more advanced features, but
essentially Visual Web Developer is simply the web development portion of
Visual Studio.

I concur.

There's a handy list of differences between them at :
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/aa700921.aspx

Here's what VWD doesn't support :

Source Control
Local database development only ( can't modify db's remotely from the IDE )
No Class Designer
No Object Test Bench
No Crystal Reports ( you must use SQL Reporting Services )
No remote debugging ( local only )
No 64-bit Compiler Support
No Server Explorer ( servers node )
No Code profiling
No Static analysis analysis
No Unit testing
No Code coverage
No Project Management
No Test case management
No support for command-line Class Library ( must compile manually )
No development for Office programs
