What is Visual Studio 2005 Premier Partner Edition ENU and can I write code with it.

I have a Windows 2003 Server.  It was given to me with Visual Studio 2005 Premier Partner Edition ENU on it.  What is this?  Does it have a programming language included with it.
Is this something that came with SQL SERVER 2005.  Is this not a real copy of Visual Studio?

Visual Studio 2005 Premier Partner Edition ENU is not a fully functional Visual Studio. It's a part of Visual Studio Team System and allows those without Visual Studio 2005 to use the "Team Explorer" functionality of Visuall Studiio Team System.

Upon further investigation, it does come with SQL Server 2005. Not only that, but it can be used for database development.
