But you can get the new compiler by installing VC-Express. Sure, the new
VC-Express won't let you create desktop projects, but the compiler is
still there and can be used the same way the compiler from current SDKs
can be used.
Only the IDE of VC-Express 11 doesn't have the ability to create desktop
or console apps, the compiler/linker still can.

It's one more download/install step instead of getting everything with
the SDK. But nothing more.
