    C# also has code regions, those are sweet. They expand/collapse in the IDE.
    Code:
    #region The Name of the Region
        code
    #end region
    VS.NET 2003 rocks.

    I wholeheartedly agree. and a recent benchmark(listed on slashdot somewhere), holds it compiles code that is faster than GCC C(even C# is better than GCC C in many areas).

    Um... DOS edit DOES NOT have that feature? Are you crazy?

    What I think is the best feature in an IDE is in Visual Studio.NET 2003 - When you refer to a namespace or object, a dropdown menu appears allowing you to navigate through the long list of descendant classes and select a property - very useful for Windows programming.

    I don't know what he means, either.

    Free. My old programming teacher gave copies to anyone who passes their AP Computer Science exam. That's right, free and legal copy of VS.NET2k3. Oh yeah.

    If you go to college, most of them have MSDNAA.

    Yeah thats another awesome feature (JCreator doesn't have it though ) I can use it on VC++ 6.0 through Visual Assist (www.wholetomato.com I think).

    To buy VS.NET from microsofr will cost about $2-3k depending on the version. I've also heard about the free-copy-from-cs-majors method, but I found a good one that will sufice until I can get into one of those Microsoft conventions where they give you free copies (I had the chance a few years ago and didn't think .NET would ever get anywhere... darn...). What you do is go down to your local library, look in the computers section, and systematically check each book for a CD in the back. Free copy of VS.NET... score...
