Apache NetBeans Features
Comments about Apache NetBeans as a Alternative to Microsoft Visual Studio
NetBeans is an IDE, but it doesn't work for .NET languages so it's hard to call it a viable alternative.4
Netbeans includes built-in GUI designer with drag and drop ability to create desktop applications and they can run on Windows as well as GNU/Linux and macOS.0

Comments about Code::Blocks as a Alternative to Microsoft Visual Studio
Code::Blocks has 0.1% of the functionality of VS. It looks ugly as well.0
It is faster than VS and the plugins make it a little better, but it doesn't look as good visually.-2
windows forms are missing and it's poorly designed0
Faster, smaller, and able to make graphical desktop applications by adding GUI designer plugin wxSmith for C++ language and wxWidgets framework. Also, CodeBlocks is cross platform.0
MonoDevelop enables developers to write desktop and web applications on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. It also makes it easy to port .NET applications created with Visual Studio to Linux and Mac OS X maintaining a single code base for all platforms.
As of October 2021, the GitHub repository README has been updated to say "This project has not been built nor maintained since January 2020 and has been archived".
Comments about MonoDevelop as a Alternative to Microsoft Visual Studio
.NET functionality, good code recommendations0
I've used MonoDevelop extensively for C# work in Linux. It can work with Visual Studio projects, and much of the shortcut key mappings match Visual Studio. Support for WinForms is available, but there is no viable GUI layout tool/functionality available. A pity that there's no XAML/WPF support under Linux....6
Has to be built from source before it'll run on Windows.8
MonoDevelop's GUI designer is admirable, I've tried it and impressed immediately with how easy and straightforward it to design a window by drag and drop. Try to compare it with Netbeans', Eclipse's or CodeBlocks' GUI designer you will know what I mean.0
It provides not only the most similar interface but also the most similar tools-2
