My 90 day free tiral is ending, so I plan to install Visual Studio Express 2008. I do not think I ned any feasture of Pro anyway. And the Express version is free. But what about this VS 2010 Express Beta 2?

http://www.microsoft.com/exPress/

Are there any advantages to jumping to this version instead? What about that it's still in Beta? I program in C#, both WinForms and Web Services.

Wondering...

Thanks,
