  1. microsoft have lots of express versions of development tools just google microsoft express. There are also lots of open source programs for development but given that you didn’t say what you wanted I cant really point you in th eright direction.

    License wise it varies from product to product and restrictions only really allpy in a commercial environment

  2. When you buy a new Mac (any model), the operating system (Mac OS X) DVD is bundled with XCode Apple’s Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for software development on the Mac, it is free. The SDKs there can also be downloaded for free from http:://developer.apple.com
