Those of you interested in .NET development, but not interested in paying the high price of Visual Studio will be thrilled to know that SharpDevelop2 Beta 2 is now available. 

I’m picky about my development tools.  I think you can rightly give MS a lot of grief about many things, but there’s little doubt that their tools are state-of-the-art.  If you compare them to what Java developer’s have to use, or worse yet, what Flash developer’s use, MS’s tools win hands down.  Everytime.  It’s not even close.

Having said that, SharpDevelop is pretty good.  Still not as good as Visual Studio, but much more lightweight and simpler, without sacrificing too much on ease-of-use.

And you can’t beat the price.
