visual studio Express
A quandry. I currently have Visual Studio 2012 Express installed and am considering downloading Visual Studio 2013 Express. Is it worth the hassle for this latest version ?

Visual Studio 2013 brought a lot of new features and Microsoft has entered in a fast release cycle, where new features are added several times a year. There is a lot of new stuff in Visual Studio 2013, although not using the Express edition, I can't really say whether the upgrades is worth it for you. Generically, I would say yes.
The regular versions of Visual Studio allow side-by-side installation of different versions (I have 2012 and 2013 installed like that), so I would think the same applies to Express, which means that you can try it and make your own opinion about it. Please not that I have no experience with the Express edition and thus cannot guarantee this side-by-side install is possible, but I would be surprised if it weren't.Rui
