Visual C# Express 2005 Express Edition Beta 2 is actually a quite nice IDE for developing C# applications. It has a lot of features that make navigating and figuring out the framework a breeze. The reason I think it sucks is the following: I had developed an application for a few hours and to be able to compile the application one must save the cs files. All is good until the IDE crashes. Now when you open up the project again it resets the cs files to the last time the actual project was saved and that was… ehmm never, so I lost all work. What a stupid behavior. Searching for the cs file on my computer only finds the new blank one that the project just created and overwrote the exisitng file. :’( Well, at least now I know how to achieve what I want so it should be a lot faster the second time… not as fast as only writing it once but I need this application.
