    Interesting (for C# at least, don't care about the rest) but I'm holding out for Visual Studio 2005 (not express), especially for the MSDN library that they include. 2003 was $30 at my campus bookstore but Microsoft software recently skyrocketed in price there. Windows XP Professional was $15, now it's $85.

        Oh, goody. Sql Server 2005 is out.

        Benefits of working for a MS shop: free software.

            Practically no features?

                Sunís Java Studio Creator is also a free download (from Sitepoint.com)

                  Who cares about other free Java IDEs when you have the almighty Eclipse? Just installed 3.2 M2 myself, playing with it (last time was 3.1).

                  (unless you want to get started with Java in which case you'll be lost for weeks in Eclipse)
