I think I read that the only difference is in the libraries to support the next generation of Windows.

I liked it it seems more stable and less memory-hungry than 2010 (Which is good seeing as how 2010 was far less stable than 2008). The XAML editor is particuarly improved.

I also prefer the new colour scheme and syntax highlighter. Intellisense much improved.

The downside is they are dropping "out of the box" XP support as a target!) for C apps, by using the new runtime. The other downside is that its going to very pricey to do yearly upgrades for me, seeing as im not going to be a student anymore. For me, im unsure if its worth upgrading.

it's around 1GB I think. You will download the Visual Studio Installer which is 1MB that will get the files first then install. It will download in "junks"

I don't think it's 4GB, I downloaded it in one day! So must be less.

Yes jbennet STUDENTS get the professional edition free from Dreamspark. However I don't think it is going to come out until the final release. After the beta that is. I got the professional edition, and Expression Studio ultimate all for free! :D

On top of that, I am so lucky that I can actually sell 100 aps for free in the Windows Phone Market (free registration as well), but that's only if I put my head down and make something!

I have registered but have not released anything.
