VB2005 Questions

1. Is there a more suitable, dedicated newsfeed for VB2005 yet?

2. I'm confused as to which version to get. I work for a small company and
we will just need VB2005 on my PC. Therefore that tends to suggest the
express version, but I write some pretty complicated stuff (including
SQLServer transactions, network programming etc) and I am wondering what is
missing from the Express version in terms of components, functionality etc.
I don't need team work, collaboration etc. Is there a URL somewhere that
will assist me?

3. Can I get VB2005 on its own? Or do I have to get VB2005 Studio (which I
assume contains C, Java etc which I don't need)

I am finding the Microsoft web site is now quite confusing when trying to
dig down to find the answers.

Thanks

Jerry,

Because it is not official released yet and therefore not even official
declared yet, you will probably have to wait on that information when it is
official (in some weeks).

Now everything can still be changed.

That is with every product so why not with developing programs.

I hope this gives you some idea.
