Somasegar explained how the full Visual Studio 2005 product line - including the Visual Studio 2005 Express products, Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition, Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition and Visual Studio 2005 Team System - meets the needs of developers of all levels. The keynote speech and announcements made at the show underscored the fact that .NET developers are realizing enormous return on Visual Studio and the .NET Framework today, and are positioned to lead the industry forward in the Visual Studio 2005 time frame.

"With Visual Studio 2005, Microsoft's goal was to move away from the idea that one tool fits all developer needs," Somasegar said. "Recent third-party studies prove the increased performance, scalability, reliability and developer productivity benefits of Visual Studio and the .NET Framework. Microsoft is taking steps with Visual Studio 2005 to make this even more compelling for a wide range of users."

Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition offers occasional developers working in small organizations a development tool that maintains the simplicity of the Visual Studio Express products but delivers access to richer features for building robust, data-driven Smart Client and Web applications.

In addition to using Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition, Visual Basic and Web developers can take advantage of tools from members of the Microsoft Visual Studio Industry Partners (VSIP) program. Compuware DevPartner Studio enables organizations to migrate their existing software to and enjoy the numerous benefits of the .NET Framework, including better support for building security-enhanced, reliable Windows and Web applications.

Moreover, Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition includes support for the add-in tools and components developed by the more than 200 VSIP program members to extend the development environment.

The company also announced Visual Studio .NET 2003 Special Edition. This new suite of products includes Visual Studio .NET 2003, Windows Server 2003 Developer Edition and SQL Server 2000 Developer Edition. Altogether, the suite provides developers with the tools they need to build and test dynamic, data-driven ASP.NET Web applications and Visual Basic applications.
