What is Visual Studio LightSwitch 2011?

As quoted here, Visual Studio LightSwitch is the newest edition of the Visual Studio family and is the simplest way to build business applications for the desktop, web and the cloud. Using application templates, Visual Studio LightSwitch 2011 saves the time and effort of building from scratch, without sacrificing the flexibility needed to create custom applications.  For the end-user developer this means you can quickly create professional quality business applications with minimal code. For the professional developer you can customize LightSwitch with your own code, controls and even build extensions that can add more capabilities than what you get out of the box.

Visual Studio 2010 Professional, Premium, Test Professional or Ultimate users must install Visual
Studio 2010 SP1 before installing Visual Studio LightSwitch 2011.
