Default Visual Studio.NET vs C#

There is a big difference in price between the full Visual Studio.net and C#.

As I understand it, the C# Language will permit me to develop forms etc. but I will not be able to distribute the code because I will not have the .NET Runtime.

Is this the only downside? Like will I have access to the visual tools for building Web Forms so that I will have the full development environment? I am just trying to learn the language at this point, so distribution is not an issue.

Visual Studio is just one of many IDEs to create applications, there are other freeware/shareware ones such as Antechinus, sharp-develop and web-matrix for asp.net. A Google search for c# IDE brought back many others. You can just use the .net sdk from Microsoft and but you don't get any visual tools, coode must be written by hand. You can still distribute all needed files etc.
