Can anyone recommend a free and or open sourece C# IDE?

Just want to fool around with the language and do some little hobby projects.

Is there anything out there like NetBeans for Java?

Huge help, Dan.

That was a big help, SharpDevelop looks very nice.

Do you use it? I seem to have run into a wal straight away in that I see the WYSIWYG form editor, but there does not seem to be a palette for inserting widgets. I can change the properties of the parent window with no problem, but cannot find how to add a simple textbox or button.

I am checking through the documentation (which did not seem to install) and the SharpDevelop online forum.

You might consider learning C#.NET from a book and simply compiling the code without the IDE. The .NET framework takes care of it for you-- there actually NO NEED for an IDE.

If you are a student, you can get VS.NET cheap, see your campus bookstore. Also EBAY.
