Difference between VS2008 VB and VB 2008 enterprise?

I don't understand the Enterprise editions that MS gives away.
If I only write VB what is the difference between buying and using VS2008
and downloading and using the VB enterprise edition?

If I write a solution containing VB and C# what is the difference?

Thanks

Do you mean "Express"? Most would regard the Team Suite edition as
"Enterprise " (i.e. top level) whereas Express is the *bottom* level.

There are various things "missing" from the express edition, although I
couldn't name them off the top of my head. It's probably easiest to try
it and see if there are things you think you need which aren't
available.

I suspect you can't load a solution (or at least all the projects) with
a mixture of project languages in Express.

Let me continue the thread based on what you replied:

If 'enterprise' (not express) is considered the 'top level', then is there
any reason an individual developer (not working in an enterprise) would need
a 'top level' (enterprise) tool to do something that the 'professional' tool
could not?

My understanding is the team suite (without looking at specs) had tools to
enable teams of developers to work together on a project, but for single
developers who were filling all the roles, there would be little-or-no
advantage from team suite. Please correct me if I am mistaken.

Well, it *used* to be the case that Professional didn't contain unit
testing - which is very important, IMO. Fortunately, that's been
corrected for VS2008.

There are various other things which a single developer *might* want -
code analysis and profiling aren't available in Pro, for example. I
suspect there may be more modeling/deployment designers available in
Team Suite too. There may well be others - I personally use Pro without
any issues though :)

If my post was code that would be a bug.
Your correct, I meant express.

Not easy to download over a modem.

But express does allow a solution with multiple projects as long as they're
the same language?

I did see a book about VB express so I know an IDE is there but it did not
say what was missing.
Thanks

Yes, it does.

I think there is a comparison somewhere on the Visual Studio website,
but I'd be looking for it from scratch too.

If auto-format is turned off in VS2008, there is apparently no way to indent a line. Under Tools->Options->Text Editor->C#->Formatting, there are three checkboxes.
