Saw this on freshmeat.net yesterday:<br /><br /><u><font color=3D"#800080">=

 />What got my interest piqued is the fact that it uses the same .sln file =
format as VS.NET for Windows does. This means I could potentially use this =
product to port current/existing projects that I am working on currently us=
ing VS.NET which is a big plus for me.<br /><br />Unfortunatly, two major i=
ssues with it -<br />- They won't (can't) release a build for OS X until ap=
ple releases J2SE 5.0 for OS X.<br />- It's not free.<br /><br />Hopefully =
they will be able to release a build for us in a few weeks time, because ac=
cording to the java FAQ at apple.com, they should be releasing 5.X with tig=
er.<br /><br />I've used linux and win32 versions of slickedit myself, and =
although I liked the VI key-binding support (my orig. reason for trying to =
see if I could use it to replace VS.NET), it seemed to have much clunkier s=
upport for both the .sln solution file format, MS' c# debugger, and SCC plu=
gins (I use perforce personally, I hear CVS works pretty well with it.)<br =

 <br />&gt; &gt;&gt; If you want intellisense under OS X try Visual slicked=
it. You can <br />&gt; &gt;&gt; download an evaluationversion from the publ=

<br />&gt; &gt;&gt; 2.x has code completion. <br />&gt; &gt;&gt; <br />&gt;=
