Which version should I develop HTML5 Site on


I want to build a website in with HTML5 as the markup language

I already have Visual Studio 2010 Professional and have downloaded and installed
"Web Standards Update for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 SP1"

I also have Visual Studio 2012 for Web Installed

But now I see that "Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition" is available.

Which one of the three should I use to build my HTML site?

The latest version of Visual Studio 2013 will enable the best tools for HTML5 although it can be done in either version. As far as which ASP.NET version to use, it doesn't matter. The .Net version only matters on the server side but I always go with the newest version available.

Is this a version that I have to buy?
If so, surely it is better to wait for 2015?
That depends on the features you require from visual studio. If you are doing simple development, the free version should work just fine for you. If you required more advanced collaboration and testing functionality you will probably want a paid version.
