New student: VS 2005 or VS 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have recently started in a computer science program at my college.  I have also registered in the Microsoft Dreamspark program to get visual studio, win server 2003 R2, expression studio 2, and SQL sever 2005 developer edition for free for use in school.  There is a choice of VS 2005 or VS 2008 and I was wondering which would be the better choice right now?  Have there been any issues with VS 2008 since it is still realatively new?

    Also, any thoughts on SQL 2005 or should I try SQL 2008 express?
