From Microsoft Watch: It’s going to be a big week for Microsoft’s developer division. Not only is the team ready to roll out Visual Studio 2005 Beta 1, but it’s also unveiling a whole new line of entry-level “Express” programming languages and tools for “weekend warrior” programmers. Microsoft is planning to charge in the “tens of dollars” for each Express tool (and to offer the embeddable Express version of SQL Server for free).
