Need a FREE replacement for Visual Studio Pro 2008

curiouswebster used Ask the Experts™
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?

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.
