Anyone tried C# Builder?
I'm curious how it compares to VS.Net.
Oh really? I've had a flyer for it on my desk for two weeks - figured it had been out at least a month...
Programers Paradise is listing the ship date as 7/26/03. (7/14/03 for the personal edition.)
Based on that link, I don't see the fuss. The IDE looks nearly identical to VS.NET, and the list of features doesn't appear to contain a single substantial feature that VS.NET doesn't already have.

In terms of features I really think that VS.net is better.
The one thing I use the VS.NET IDE for is Intellisense. If somebody came out with a C# editor (doesn't even need to be an IDE, as far as I'm concerned) that supported high quality Intellisense plus refactoring support, I'd switch in a heart-beat.

Automatic refactoring would be sweet. Add either makefile or NAnt support instead of those proprietary VS solutions, and I'll switch too. Intellisense is truly the one killer feature of VS.NET... the rest is just about passable.
The integration with SQL server is really nice too.
I'm going to stick with VS.NET 2003, as I love doing the SQL Server stuff and ASP.NET all in one IDE.

www.icsharpcode.net/OpenSource/SD/Default.aspx is an open source IDE.
Steve - when editing stored procedures in the IDE in VS.Net, do you get real errors now? Or still just the "Errors Occurred" dialog?
