Interesting. It probably won't be free, but I'd rather give money to JetBrains - with their unblemished history of not ripping people off - than RedGate.

Agreed. Free or not free, I'll be taking a good hard look at the JetBrains product and maybe I'll see what else they are offering over there as well...

JetBrains offers ReSharper which is an awesome tool. You can "F11" to step into a .NET method; it will then pull the .NET source (actual, commented source) on the fly and step into it. Pretty awesome. Checking out .NET assemblies was 90% of why I used Reflector anyway

So it's a case of "He who codes and runs away, lives to code another day," huh? Smile

I own both JetBrains ReSharper and RedGate's .NET Developer bundle. I purchased each with a specific use in mind.

With regards to ReSharper, it's a great tool --I just wish it didn't slow my IDE down to a crawl or conflict with other Visual Studio add-ins. I usually have to disable it and haven't used it for months.

However, I don't see that issue with RedGate's profiling tools. (Reflector is just the icing on the cake with that bundle.)

It's a not about 'ripping people off' as much as it is creating a useful tool which gives you the best "bang for your buck". Since I actually have to disable ReSharper to develop, I was the one who got ripped off for something I can't use.

Amen!

I think that Red Gate realized that they made a bad investment by spending money to add features to Reflector that were unasked-for, and now don't want to eat the costs of their bad investment, choosing instead to punish users for their mistake.

I regret that Lutz Roeder sold Reflector to a company that has decided to force users to eat the costs of their poor judgment regarding the market's need for an enhanced version of the tool - it's too bad he didn't simply open-source it.

[Edit] - And to those of you complaining about ReSharper's performance, either your machine is simply inadequate in some fashion, or you are not maintaining it very well - I don't have any problems running it, and my current client has me working with a Visual Studio solution that contains 23 separate projects (for the which we can thank the vendor that originally sold it to my client). Maybe you should utilize a RAM disk or something for the ReSharper files. Also, make sure your disk is defragmented often. I really don't know why people have problems with the speed of it, I've used it for over 3 years and never had a problem.

Oh boy. I'm so p*****d right now. I uninstalled all RedGate products from my machine leaving only JetBrains products. I don't know, I'm not minding anymore even if I bought the profiler packages. I just feel I couldn't trust RedGate. I even had to create a new account just to post my rants here.

(now eyeing JetBrains profiler Smile)
