Are there people developing on tools other than Visual Studio, say
SharpDevelop etc...? Or is Visual Studio _THE_ IDE for developing for the
..NET Framework? Just curious...

I use Notepad sometimes....
But seriously, I usually only use VS, however sometimes I use
DreamWeaver for ASP.NET (if not using code behind files).
I'm not sure what else besides VS there is for developing for CE.NET
with debugability..

I think there is something called 'Web Matrix' for ASP.NET which people
also use but I have never tried it. But apparently it got quite popular
during .NET1.0 but I have no idea if its still useful in 1.1 and 2.0.
Apparently its a lot more light-weight compared to VS.

Oh, the Delphi.NET studio isn't half bad either!

Well you have the Express Editions for non and small team development,
I have used them for 3-4 weeks now because they are with .NET 2.0 and
we're still considering which Visual Studio 2005 version to buy.
My experience is that they fit 95% ok into our situation with Web
Development as our primary business and small other ad-hoc application
development both in WinForms and WebForms, class library building, but
it doesn't have template support for projects such as building Windows
Services, but the Web Developer edition can do Web Services besides
ASP.NET Websites. They don't have support for Setup-projects either.

The Express Editions is free for one year, I mean to have read that MS
plans that they will cost $99 in the future.

More information on the Express Editions:

But my opinion is that Visual Studio is _THE_IDE_ it's simply _THE_
tool for building, testing, debugging and deploying .NET solutions.

I remember once I downloaded the Borland C# ide. Very nice ide, good
debugging support and very nice editor. check out:
But these days using Visual Studio .net 2005 rtm for about 3 weeks, I'm sure
nothing compared to that exists in the market anywhere. You can also use the
express editions which are available for free! check out:

I would say yes the Visual Studio is _THE_IDE! VS Rocks!
