Eclipse vs. Visual Studio

Abstract from EclipseCon 2006:

Microsoft has reportedly spent 750 million dollars developing Visual Studio .NET. Visual Studio is Microsofts latest development environment aimed at Visual Basic, C#, and C++ developers. Microsoft is known for their dominance in productivity and development tools, so how does Visual Studio stack up against an open source development environment like Eclipse? In this presentation, veteran Java developer and independent consultant Madhu Siddalingaiah relates his personal experiences with Eclipse and Visual Studio while working on high profile, real world projects. You will hear first hand what the state of the art is and what it means for the future of software development. Madhu will highlight key features of Visual Studio and present a brief demonstration for attendees to judge for themselves.
