XNA game development platform will be FREE

Microsoft will be releasing an Express version of their XNA development environment free!  ๐Ÿ™‚  That means that folks like you and I can create our applications for the XBox 360 (and, simultaneously for Windows) much more easily!  That is cool!  I expect a development community to spring up with free games, trial games, and all sorts of non-game applications as well.  Fun!  You can read more about it here.
