It's simple, use Visual Studio to write C#. That's what it's designed to
do and, however good Eclipse is, it cannot compare with VS for C#
because that's C#'s native environment. I think there's a minimal- or
community version of VS. At least there was when I used it.

Whatever your desires here, and I have heard of people using Eclipse for
C#, you'll want to use a modern version of Eclipse rather than Europa
which is something like 7 years old. You may as well use Juno or Kepler
to get started; it's free and you're not saving anything by using such
an old version. In fact, you just multiply your headache of getting help
with it.

Google is your friend for finding help developing C# using Eclipse. You
might find someone here in this forum, but I doubt it.

Best of luck!

I could be wrong then. I'm not a Microsoft guy; I only used it a few
years ago (and it was a free and legal version I used then). Maybe there
isn't a community edition, but I thought someone told me recently that
there is. My bad.
