ASP.NET Web Matrix: Reloaded
ASP.NET Web Matrix: Reloaded: "Although still not a '1.0' product - its current version number is 0.6.784 - it remains a highly productive tool with many intriguing features, some of which are simply absent in the much higher-powered Visual Studio .NET. In fact, one thing that impressed me most about Web Matrix is it doesn't attempt to be a scaled-down version of VS .NET at all. It's obvious from using the tool that the designers really thought about what was most relevant to the average, non-enterprise ASP.NET developer and tried to fill in some of the Web development holes that exist in VS .NET. The best way to describe Web Matrix is as a Web development tool for developers who simply find VS .NET to be overkill."
