Why not use SharpDevelop as IDE ? SharpDevelop has also a mighty plugin
which allows almost any language. It is written entirely in .NET which makes
the development
of reflection browser, code completion etc. more easy than developing it in
And you don't need a java platform to run it.

Support, yes eclipse has company support, but no company support for
C#/VB.NET or any other
.NET language, you have to develop the .NET tools from "ground up".

Btw. eclipse is not free, it is open source, but it is not free.
