I am getting another PC here at work. I currently run MS Visual Studio .Net 2003, and I wanted to upgrade to Visual Studio .Net 2005.
When our software ordering guy went to order this he was told that it was not longer available under that name, it is now called "Visual Studio Pro 2005"...is this true? Is it the same thing?
Are there any restrictions with Pro? Is this the developers package?

It's official name is Visual Studio 2005. They dropped the .NET
There are many editions of VS2005 - you will have to evaluate which is right for your environment. I have the Standard Edition at home and the Pro Edition at work. I don't use any of the features at work that I can't use at home.

As Rossoneri said, Visual Studio 2005 (without .NET) is the name of the last version of Visual Studio.
"Pro" is just an edition of Visual Studio 2005, there are five editions available (Express (free), Standard, Professional (or Pro), Tools For Office and Team System), the best choice for you depends on your needs, for example, if you want an edition that
supports Office development then you should order Tools For Office or Team System, but if you want to develop for Mobile devices then you should order Standard, Professional or Team System.
Take a look at
Product Feature Comparisons page, it will help you to select the best edition for you needs.
