Tangible Thoughts SharePoint, MOSS? and all the other questions

Over the last few months there has been quite a bit of news regarding Windows Mobile that has focused on 'pumping-up' the platform to compete with everything else out there (including the iphone)

for instance

But what has me stumped is the cost of breaking into development, the IDE Visual Studio Standard Edition still requires some hard thinking before investing for the hobby developer (which as you would notice accounts for quite a percentage of the Apps on the Apps Store)

Which brings me to the following question "What has Microsoft to lose by making a Visual Studio Express: Mobile Development Edition?". If they do make an express version for Windows Mobile development, wont there be a ROI if the apps developed make their way to the MarketPlace.

Also in my opinion the Windows OS got its leg up against all of its competitor because of the number of applications available for it.
