Regarding Programming with SQL Express and SQL Developer's Edition

When I bought my copy of Visual Studio it came with disks to install the
"developer's edition" of MS SQL. However, while installing Visual
Studio, the Express version was automatically installed and I have been
using the express version with my C# programs.
My question is, what, if any, benefit would there be in installing the
developer's version instead of continuing to use the express version.

Thanks in advance for your responses. :)

"SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition and Evaluation Edition are not listed
in the tables. These editions have the same feature set as the
Enterprise Edition; the only difference between these editions is the
licensing policies."

Thank you for the fast reply and the link, Arne. That answered my
question perfectly, because I wasn't aware that Developer Edition was
functionally equivalent to Enterprise Edition.

Thank you for your assistance. :)
