Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 (v9.0) is a native IDE for .NET 3.5. It is very similar to any other Visual Studio versions. It provides more functionality and targets a different version of C# (C# 3.0).
Also Microsoft has released the light versions of Visual Studio (Visual Studio 2008 C# Express edition), which can be downloaded for free.
The way how the CS-Script is integrated with VS2008 is virtually the same as with VS2005/2003 (see previous chapters).

You can significantly improve the level of the development convenience by enabling CS-Script toolbar and CS-Script code snippets from Visual Studio Integration console.
