I'm talking about Microsoft Visual Studio of course, ASP.NET VB.NET C++.NET etc..

I have had to learn some VB.NET due to my college course, I have to say, it's quite a logical language, with similarities to PHP, but subtle differences also. I don't know if this is better or worse, but I often end up writing more code in VB.NET than in PHP, and more code = more time.

Anyone else played with Visual Studio? It's free.. iirc.

I make my living as a developer of Dot.Net related web applications and support tools. My primary development tool is Visual Studio 2010 currently. So the answer to your question would be yes.

I've used Visual Studio for quite a long time, and recently obtained MS VS 2010 Ultimate, thanks to Uni. But yes, the express editions (ie. MS VS C# Express 2010) should be free, as long as you're student, I believe.

Personally I've only been busy with ASP.net and C#.net; the latter only a bit, though. Unfortunately ASP.net doesn't go very well with Apache servers. It is possible, but it's just a pain to work with if not using a Windows server. C#.net is all right so far, though.

Visual Studio isn't free but Visual Web Developer is, whether you're a student or not. I've extensively used both, and for web dev you can do practically everything in VWD that you can do in VS. I highly recommend downloading it.

I developed in MIcrosoft's Active Server Pages for about 7 years and was a late changer to .Net. I've been developing .Net apps in C# using Visual Studio for about 3 years now.
Comparing developing in a scripting environment like ASP to an object oriented, compiled environment is like comparing chalk and cheese.
If developing PHP is similar to ASP (which I believe it is - had a brief look at PHP a while ago) then I would say developing in Visual Studio is at least twice as fast as developing in a scripting language.
