    I am new to learning VB.NET, so far I am enjoying what I am doing. I am curious though about the difference between Visual Basic Express (which is free) and Visual Studios? Is there certain things I wouldn't be able code in Visual Basic Expess that I could with Visual Basic?

    I've heard that express has some limitations such as the amount of open socks connections at once, and with professional versions you can have multiple projects in a single solution where as the express edition does not offer this feature. Express also does not support the ability to create applications for windows mobile.

    and if you are going to get serious you need source control. This is not available in the express versions.
