Visual Studio Free for small teams

There is a huge difference between Visual Studio Express and the aptly named Visual Studio 2013 Community edition, though: The new version is extensible, so get access to the over 5,100 extensions now in the Visual Studio ecosystem. It’s basically a full version of Visual Studio with no restrictions, except that you can’t use it in an enterprise setting and for teams with more than five people (you can, however, use it for any other kind of commercial and non-commercial project).

“The simple way to think about this is that we are broadening up access to Visual Studio,” Microsoft’s corporate VP of its Developer Division S. “Soma” Somasegar told me in an interview late last month. Somasegar told me that the Community Edition will allow you to build any kind of application for the Web, mobile devices, desktop and the cloud. “It’s a full features version of Visual Studio,” he noted. “It includes the full richness of the Visual Studio extensions and ecosystem.”


This is great news! Wish they would have announced this a couple months ago before I bought VS 2013 pro at full price :(

I got Ultimate from my school.

However, it is for educational use, so I would likely need to get the Community Edition before releasing anything commercially. My only question with the Community Edition is...what version of VS is it? All I keep seeing is "it is the full version". There are 3 full versions, not including Team Foundation.

Well, for those of us not in school... and who work for ourselves... I thought it was a big deal :P

It sounds like the Express edition, but with the ability to add extensions, and it can be used for commercial products, which I don't think Express can... maybe?
