Microsoft is killing the following editions of VS Express:    
  - Visual C#
  - Visual Basic  
  - Visual C++  

They will still be available but won't be updated beyond the current version 10. 

They will instead only be offering the following three products: 
  - Express for Windows Phone
  - Express for WIndows 8 (Metro only: supports C#, VB, C++, and Javascript)      
  - Express for Web    

At this point it isn't clear from Microsoft's blog post if you'll be able to produce "forms" or console applications in the "Windows 8" edition (but I suspect not).
