Any Good Dot Net Code Behind Editors Besides VS?

Hi guys.. and gals.. Anyone have any good luck with a third party editor that will do code behind files? I could of course use any ole text editor, but I like the idea of the code behind files so I can pass off the interface to some graphics dudes.. and then do the coding myself.. That said, I hate the editor in VS.. From what I can see here, it looks like I'm not the only one.. I'm thinking of trying the free web matrix editor as it looks like it might be a tad better, but I don't think it supports code behind files, from what I can tell in my brief look.. So, if you know of a good editor, please let me know.. I thank you in advance..

AFAIK, the only one is the Delphi IDE, which lets you code in their Object Pascal language or in C#.  Haven't tried it, though,

What about Sharp Developer?

Its an open source .net editor.  Haven't looked at it in couple of years. Primitive back then.

Sharp Developer. Looks like last update 2003.

I don't use it, but the project history would suggest it's moved on a little since 2003.
