Default Are VS 2005 Express Products real VS 2005?

Just found out that there is an Express Products edition for VS 2005, and it is free for downloading from Microsoft web site. Is this just an evaluation version? Or a real VS.net 2005 for small projects?

If we just want to develop ASP.net web pages using VB.net, will these Express Products good enough for our needs? Any limitations?

TIA,
Jeffrey

The express products are "real" VS Products as they provide functionality similiar to that of Visual Studio. They are not evaluation copies but you do have to register with Microsoft to activate the product. Obviously, the Express products lack features that are found in the full version of VS2005 (although i can not tell you exactly which features are absent in the express editions)

Depending on your needs the express products should work for you. hth.
