I don't use those anyway. SQL Server Express suffices for my needs.

Same here. I bought VS2008 Standard and Active Reports 6. That combined with SQL Server 2008 R2 Express (which I keep under lock and key by the way) makes for a powerful development package, all for under $1K. It will be some time before I need to shell out any more $ for development tools.

Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
