  I am a professional C# developer that has been using Visual Studio since 
version 2003. Almost 7 years now.
  There is very little, that I am not able to do with the Express version of 
Visual Studio at home that I do with the Premium versions at work.

(mono) that only supports half of the features. I like the idea of the project, 
but really the .net framework is going to be used anywhere in the market.

      so your recommending the OP use an out-dated version of a framework that

      is supported natively on windows? we're 3 versions on from version 2.0,
      with lots of new features and lots of changes.

        Mono is not the same as the .net framework. Just get the express

      edition

        and you're good. Also: if you are a student, you get vs 2010 free, and
        Microsoft also gives out vs 2010 ultimate to MSDNAA members.

          No, not without knowing your visual status.  If you have memory of
          having had vision or better yet have a little useable vision your

      best

          bet would be to learn the language with windows forms.  If you have

      no

          memory of vision, then your best bet would be to learn the language
          using the console interface, and these are two completely different
          paths.

          Hi,

          Could someone suggest where I can go to learn how to use VB as a
          beginner?
          I would like to get the understanding of the language and how to

        create

          software with it.
