We are just about to switch development platforms and start a project using Silverlight. (Previously used Delphi/Intraweb).

The prefered language here at our company is now c#.  There are a number of different versions of Visual Studio available and i am not sure what they all can/can not do.

What version would you recomend for out first Sliverlight project, and what would be the pros and cons?

Now latest version of Silverlight is Silverlight 4

Silverlight 4 is working with Visual Studio 2010 & Framework 4. Only.

So if you want to develop application in SL4 then you have to use VS 2010, Framework 4.
