Using SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition

At work, I have read only access to SQL Server.  I can only write queries and save them to my hard drive.  If I buy the Developer Ediiton and install at home, can I do everything that someone with full access could do?  I want to build my skill sets with SQL and am unable to do so at work.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes the developer edition has all the features of the Enterprise edition. You could save yourself some money and just use the free Express edition:
