There is a list of IDEs that list C# as alternative, yet it's not an IDE. VS, SharpDevelop and MonoDevelop - those are C# IDEs that are alternatives. While C# is alternative to languages - Pascal, C++, Java etc

I agree. This site is becoming less organized and accurate. It seems like users with a "dog in the fight" are adding their product as an alternative to everything just to drive traffic to their product...

Things keep improving, but very slowly. Still no fully Integrated Development Environment. There are few options, but all 3 main options are incomplete - GlassDocking does not ingrate Form Designer and does not save tabbed panels, KzDesktop does intergrate it, but does not have customizable panels. AnchorDocking is even less featured than GlassDocking. No separate interface settings for debug and development. No Welcome Page as well. Still no cross-platform capabilities out of box. CodeInsight is very primitive, reminds more of Delphi 7. Personally I can't live now without Delphi's CnWizard's Code Competition. It much more superior. Not talking about Visual Studio's IntelliSense. It appears also community support isn't good enough as well, since most of popular mods, like CnWizard and GExpert doesn't get ports or even integrated. If developers want their thing to be popular, then they have to work mod developers and help them to port or integrate their features into Lazarus. But it seems it doesn't happen. No Component/Mod Portal as well - it needs to have something where developers could publish their componenents and mods with ability to search and install them right from Lazarus. There is a third-party destro of Lazarus called CodeTyphon. It has most of most popular components and mods in its bundle, which helps the situation for newbies somehow. It's just slight view. Haven't been digging deep into debugging, deployment etc.
