> SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services has SQL Server Management Studio Express
Ahh, cool. I didn't know that. :-)
To the best of my knowledge, the two are both equally "current generation". The regular express is
kept with minimal features so it is quick to download and (can) only install core services. This can
be important both for download speed and to not "litter" the machine with unnecessary stuff.
