    Professional Edition? Enterprise edition? What's the difference?

    Yep, a silly question, but if I have the option of installing Visual Studio .Net 2003 Professional or Enterprise Developer edition, which should I go for? I've Googled around and can't really get a clear answer as to what the difference is. BTW, these are legit copies (MSDN Subscription).

    Here's hoping for some enlightenment

    First, why for the love of god are you using VS 2003. The only valid reason is maitenence on an existing project. Which I just started on today. Which reminded me how much better VS 2005 is. Nevermind VS 2008.

    Rant aside, I would install Enterprise Architect. Main reason is it gives you one neato load testing tool--Application Center Test.

    Reason for installing is compatibility/mirroring with work environment. Visual Studio 2005 is already installed on the machine that I plan to put VS2003 on. Don't worry, there's a reason for it.

    Thanks for the advice :-)
