Yes, but also this:

"""4. Can I use Express Editions for commercial use?
Yes, there are no licensing restrictions for applications built using the
Express Editions.

Well, this is completely irrelevant for Python. Python does not use
any .NET whatsoever (except for IronPython, of course). What framework
version the C# links with is irrelevant for the to-native C compiler.

I guess the Express version can also build firefox, just fine.
