I'm doing a course next term which involves doing some web development. Unfortunately we've been told that we have to use Windows to do it (specifically Visual Web Developer Express). Before I bother the lecturer some more to find out the technical details of why Windows is required. Looking through the product page and the course introduction (which is also free of technical jargon), it seems we will probably be doing something with SQL Server 2005 Express. If there any way to access that natively on the Mac, or am I going to have to bite the bullet and install Windows?
