I use it, its great for what i need with Source (I dont have 2003 so i can't really compare).

Nothing special really, just some includes that need sorting.

Can you explain the includes, what is needed to get going? Any document explaining that somewhere?

Also, is it really free? Not a 30 day trial?

the express edition is free and all you have to do additionally is to install Platform SDK (stuff for native Win32 like Windows.h and stuff, it by default comes with .Net stuff only as far as I remember)

simply copying a directory called PlatformSDK from my school worked for me

Ah okay, thanks for clarifying this, but still don't know why a popup says you have 30 day trial...confusing...

Have you registered the product.
This is free and I think it will remove the trial version pop-up. And you'll receive Microsoft's emails from time to time :D

this is a development tool, it get's better when it's creators know what kind of public is using it (are they mostly students, are people interested in .Net... and stuff)
