I tested it a few years back (~2004), it was the reason I bought Visual Studio 2003 back then. I still have nightmares. At it times it was not on the level of the java IDE, maybe nowadays it is better. I would spend 500$, VS is really good, I will not risk an other bunch of gray hairs.
but I believe Eclipse is an option.

When I would need an alternative to any software, I usually check out alternativeto.net/software/visual-studio
However, I've tried to find a good substitute for VS (as C/C++ support isn't that good) I've tried eclipse, netbeans and code::blocks but I've gone back to VS. No matter how much you hate it, I still find it the best IDE out there. Sometimes a tweak or plugin can help you. I found some plugins that improve the intellisense.

PS: where did you find the rumours about visual studio express 2011 is going to be metro only? I think that the express edition is and probably will stay free and keep the functionality that the current versions have. In the worst case you can just keep using your VS10.
