Microsoft seriously considered the idea of bundling Visual Studio Express with Windows Vista, according to a Microsoft official quoted on ArsTechnica. Microsoft is still considering including "a link in Vista's Programs menu which would reach out to the MSDN site and download an Express edition of Visual Studio, presumably whichever one the user prefers," ArsTechnica reports. Some developers may be disappointed by Microsoft's decision to scuttle the plan. But antitrust watchers and those who believe Vista is already too big and bloated aren't likely to shed any tears.
