Eclipse and .NET

Are there any good plug-in for Eclipse IDE that suppose .NET and C#. I
think the Eclipse IDE is better than VS.NET and it would be nice to develop
in this environment. I also do Java development so it would be a benefit to
use the same IDE for both.

I feel your pain. Eclipse is a lovely IDE, and its Java tooling is
wonderful. (I hear that IDEA is even better, but I've never managed to
get into it.)

Unfortunately, the only C# plugin I've seen for Eclipse is pretty lousy
- it's basically syntax colouring and a call out to csc (in a nasty
console window).

The good news is that VS 2005 is significantly better than VS.NET 2003
- Microsoft have joined the 21st century and discovered refactoring :)
I still miss things like "Organise Imports" and the ability to hold
down Ctrl to turn just about anything into a navigational hyperlink
though...

You should also mention that C# Express is free for the time being (this
will probably change), and that you can download it legally from
Microsoft to see how you like it.

Quick. I'm aching for a correction.

That's all true. Of course, Eclipse is not only free for download, but
is also open source, so you can even modify it if you want to :)
