[.net] Visual Studio 2005 vs. #Develop 2.0

Recommended Posts

The only thing that really matters is which one would be best for you, which is not a question that we can really answer. You can try out both for free right now, so why not give both a shot and see which you like better?

Microsoft did create C#. Also, Microsoft has been making IDEs for a long time now. I think it is a tough choice, but if you like #develop then it should do fine.

Sharpdevelop does have an integrated debugger.
Not to mention other features like refactoring support, support for compiling to different runtimes (mono and .net 1.1 as well as 2.0) and support for other .NET languages like boo.

They are both fairly riddled with bugs. I would say that it depends on what kind of development that you are doing.

If you are doing non gui (winforms, gdi) development, either will work fine.
If you are doing web development I would go with sharp develop unless you can afford vs.net pro.
If you are doing game dev, then either will likely work fine, though I use VS.Net for game dev.
