    I come from a Delphi programming background. What advantage does one gain by purchasing Visual Studio Professional over the Express edition when developing for Windows Phone 7?

    Currently, and someone correct me if I'm wrong on this, but the following:
    VB code support
    Support for the enterprise environment including server explorer rather than just data explorers - this is for the entire VS environment
    Outside of that I don't think that there is a ton different at the moment. I use Professional so I'm not sure all of what Express may be lacking.

    I'm new to developing for the phone os, but am generally an ERP/BMS developer in VB.net. So for me I prefer to have VB, just preference from my perspective.

    The express version also doesn't support add-ins. Makes it more of a pain to use with source control. Again though, that's more of an enterprise type thing, although there are some other useful add-ins out there.

    Automate edit changes such as city names, company names and people names to the same text
    Change case, add text to cells, select cells based on many conditions
    Sum or sort based on color!
