SharpDevelop, well what is it? As most of your would know Its a open-source IDE for C#,NET, VB.NET, etc. So anyone who wants to develop a small program and easily can try there hands on this program. The requirements are simple. You need to have .NET Framework 2 :( runtime or SDK which ever is easy to your then run the 8MB setup and install the IDE. Please note if you are thinking of using this in a production site then be prepared to face certain unforeseen (well actually known) consequences.

SharpDevelop is fairly easy to use. If you have used MS Visual Studio 2003 or 2005, then you will immediately notice the similarities. The neat thing about SharpDevelop is that there is very less to install but still you get a lot of good and similiar feature to that of MS Studio 2005. Anyway SharpDevelop is best to be used if you wanted to make some tools and some same database applications.

Just don't get too comfortable with it, cause there are some know issues with using it. Check out the link below:

Comparison between Visual studio Express vs Sharpdevelop.

Well after going through the list, its still doesn't seem that bad. But still a word of caution - just don't go to take a

project and end-up trying to develop an application using this. Maybe ok for free time but never think of using this on

production area. So Lets see what I can comeup with to create. I need some really good ideas. ;-)

SharpDevelop doesn't sound too bad. I haven't done any programming other than html and php since college, but I have been considering brushing up on my C and taking it a few steps further.
