with mono and even in Linux)

We are announcing a pricing promotion for Visual Studio Express – for

novice community – we're excited to see the amazing applications
they'll build!

Note that SQL Server 2005 Express Edition is also a free download. The
free pricing for SQL Server Express is not limited to the same
one-year promotional period as Visual Studio Express.

promotional offer, until November 6, 2006. Note that we are also
offering SQL Server 2005 Express Edition as a free download, and that
this offer is not limited to the same promotional pricing period as
Visual Studio Express.
