    I havn't tried it because I'm to lazy to register, but why not just use the compiler that comes free with the .NET framework?

    I've played around with it and it looks nice. That was all I could do because I don't know C#.

    I downloaded it, and liked it quite a bit. Although I also like the C# Express IDE from Microsoft much better. Both are great.

    I have been using it now for a short time, and I will say two things about it.
    (1) You get what you pay for.
    - Good for trying out the language
    - Free of charge is always a plus
    (2) Missing some more advanced options
    - What can you expect for free.
    - I do miss some of the code editing options offered in M$ C++.NET 2002 Compiler.
    And on my smiley face scale, we have four smiles and two frowns. So in all, I would say this compiler gets my approval and is worth what I paid for it...
