Mono Project Two weeks ago we covered the news that the Mono development team were let go kicked out by the new owners of Novel, Attachmate, apparently to move operations to Germany. Miguel de Icazza, founder of Mono, has taken this opportunity to break off on his own and has started a new company, Xamarin, to bring commercial .NET development products to iOS and Android.

Sounds like you are trying to use Eclipse like VS.
VS is a great tool, for working the Microsoft way. PERIOD. And that is how in the .NET land think, for most part. (There is little wrong with that, until they start preaching...)

Yet, finding free libraries for Java? Are you (I'm really out of words here). As libraries and frameworks go, F/OSS or proprietary, Java is #1. The problem is not finding, it's choosing.

I have a lot of respect towards VS and the work that MS has put into dev tools, but you are overdoing it.

PS: Problem with Android dev tools is poor UI editor and the fact that it uses an emulator, not simulator. Not Eclipse, per se.
