Now that's a sharp idea!

Les sent me a link to Glen Stampoultzis' blog, who writes:

Looks like JetBrains (IntelliJ) are considering doing a C# IDE. Spotted this on the early access newsgroup:

Hi there,
Noticed intellij are advertising for a C# developer on the .com website.
Does this mean a C# version of IDEA is coming?

It's coming if we find those great C# developers :) Yes, we are planning it.

This is great news. IntelliJ IDEA is by far the best IDE I've ever worked with; it's jam-packed with many useful automated refactorings and tons of other features that make a developer's life much easier. If they can bring that to C#, I may just have to retire my copy of Visual C#.NET.

Hopefully this give the VS.NET team the kick that IDEA gave the Borland JBuilder team. Competition is a GOOD thing.

Not that there is anything really _wrong_ with VS.NET, just a few (lot) of things could be added.
