XNA Game Studio Express leverages the Visual C# Express development environment, extending it for game development.
XNA Game Studio Express is designed to work only with Microsoft Visual C# 2005 Express Edition.
I would like to be able to use this product, though I have not the faintest idea on how to code in C#...
Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
VS2008 is the first version that XNA could support VB from a technical standpoint. We did some runtime agility work so the vb runtime will be stable when ported to a new version of the framework (XNA uses a custom version of the CF). So we're hopeful for XNA add VB support when XNA takes on support for VS 2008. I can't comment on dates, etc, unfortunately. I hope to say more about that this upcoming year.

I reckon to see way more "hobby" developers doing new development for the XBox platform, for example.

That's also cool! I can't download the express versions of any of the VS packages (though if XNA becomes supported in an Express version of VB2008, I'll go out of my way to find an Express copy! ) so it'll be great to add the framework in the non-express VS2005...
Now just one last problem: Learning C#!
