Wait folks. VS 2005 installation went smoothly (2 hours of wasted time). But SQL Server 2005 Express Edition bothers me. You don't have any GUI to manage this - they say one will come in August. Come on. You can work with it only via Server Explorer and it does not have some sample database e.g. Northwind, so I have to export mdf from somewhere. What the hell. VS data team explains how can you export mdf via xcopy in the meantime (from where ?). Thus you violate MS best practices. Ok, I will continue to play with the tool.
