MS really did it right with the Express Editions of their Development tools. I like the idea very much
It would be interesting to get some stats on what products are being created (or started) with the Express editions. I’d like to know how MS is measuring the success of this strategy. Letting people have, for free, a chunk of a development tool.
Makes me wish that SV had an Express Edition of Clarion. I realise this is probably in the works for 7. I hope so.
