I've already written some commentary on SlickEdit. Basically, to recap, it's pretty good. It has its uses and can make some development shop's work much easier. Overall, I like it.

I also mentioned in my previous review that I hadn't had much chance to review the VS version. I have had a chance to do so since my review.

Again, overall it's ok, but I find myself turning to the VS tools more often than not, and I find myself not really aggressively learning the tool. It seems to be good, but it also seems to be, well, unnecessary for me day to day. Not beating on the tool; just pointing out that it does not appear to fit my use of VS.

And there is on thing that is absolutely driving me nuts: the SlickEdit Assistant window. I've tried to get it "out of the way" but no matter what I do, I can't get it to be anywhere but right underneath my Solution Explorer when I use the AutoHide (which I almost always do).

It is like a thumb with dead nerves; it's there and it's alive, but it keeps getting in the way at the most annoying times. As a result, I most often close it so which defeats the purpose of having it there. I've tried all kinds of things to get it to move, and I can move the native VS windows around just great. I know, I know...I could adapt and grow more accustomed to it, but that's sort of the point. I don't have time to just "deal with it" until I can get "used to it". Again, this might not bother most people, but now it's like the cut on the roof of your mouth that would get better if you could just quit tounging it.
