vb 2005 standard question

P: n/a
Hi. I understand Microsoft has VB 2005 Express available for download. I
want to know if there is a standard version of Visual Basic 2005? If it's in
the Visual Studio studio suite, then which one?

I'm just confused with the Visual Studio and .NET lingo. I just want to know
where the latest Visual Basic programming languages are. Thanks.

The latest version of Visual Basic is "Visual Basic 2005." It exists in parallel
with version 2.0 of the .NET Framework.

Visual Studio is a tool used to develop programs in Visual Basic 2005 (and
I guess in C# if you want to :-)). There are different levels of this tool.
The most basic is the Express Edition, which is available as a free download.
You can also purchase "Standard", "Professional", and "Team System" versions
of Visual Studio, each with an increasing number of features included. No
matter which version of Visual Studio you choose, the version of Visual Basic
used is the same (although it may be easier to get to use some of the language
features in the more expensive tools).

There is no "Standard" version of Visual Basic 2005. After the Express versions all languages are
unified into the Visual Studio 2005 versions.
