[Michael Teper] Mike Gunderloy pointed to the Visual Studio 2005 Product Line Overview page and commented that he doesn't understand why the Express line does not include source control support.

This was one of the things that jumped out at me as well. The Express line of products is intended for a hobbyist programmer and one could do no greater service than introduce a beginner to the concept of source control. Fine, don't include VSS, but at least throw in the option to support SCC integration!

IMO, SCC is the concept every beginning developer should be forced to learn. Thay may be too extreme a view, but not even giving a hint of SCC support is too extreme in the opposite direction!”
