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.

Oh comon ... eclipse is crap compared to even VS 2005. NuGet Package manager actually is inspired more by Ruby Gems than anything else (which is what I am pretty sure you are referring to).


I am referring to the C# development tools, even those from VS 2010, which are total crap compared to the Java development tools found in Eclipse, latest version.

I have never used NuGet, and frankly I don't see how a package manager would help me over sub-par code editing/completion tools.

I don't know what version of Visual Studio you have used but code completion is miles ahead of Eclipse ...

Code completion feels clunky in Eclipse compared to VS2010 and I can't use space or ctrl-space to complete which really slows me down.

The only bad versions of Visual Studio is 2002 and 2003.

I had to go back to using Eclipse the other week for an Android project and I felt like I was back in 2004.

2010, which is actually obvious from reading my post.

Well, ctrl+space works fine for me. Which part is the hard one, pressing ctrl or pressing space?

Eclipse will complete AND update import (using) statements at the same time PLUS take static type information into account. It will also make suggestions for naming a newly defined variable. VS2010 does none of these.

Huh? Of course you can. Ctrl-Space triggers code completion in Eclipse. Where on earth did you get the idea it doesn't?

I don't like Eclipse myself. I much prefer IDEA. But I guarantee you that Eclipse does support Ctrl-Space code completion.

Eclipse is crap. It's been stagnant for years. NetBeans and IntelliJ IDEA are both way ahead of it now.

Eclipse's WTP tools are so bad, they are almost unusable. Visual Studio is significantly better than Eclipse.
