As you say the the express solution doesn't compile, upload, burn boot loaders, have serial windows, have menus that allow libraries to be added, refresh intellisense as you code and a bunch of other things. Express is okay if you are working on a relatively fixed set of projects or a single project. The professional solution is a complete solution that makes life quite a bit easier.
The WebSiteSpark offer includes a wide range of microsoft client and server software. Learning some of these products and technologies will help anyone who is looking to expand their career options. The available software enables us, amongst hundreds of other things, to create our own lan based internet servers for testing and learning, it includes a professional database and data design tools for anyone who wants to learn how to design data layers, it includes front end ajax and graphical web design tools that can integrate seemlessly with each other, includes working examples that will provide many people with a starting point for their projects.
In short it includes all of the software required to setup just about any business and that which is used by just about every business.
How can this not be good knowelge for the majority of people? Let's face it, anyone who feels they don't need to expand their career options or has nothing to learn will not be needing a free copy of anything!
