For school I have to use the Visual Studio .NET IDE. However such tool doesn't exist on the Mac. Does anyone know if there is an IDE on the Mac that kind of looks like Visual Studio?
Sadly, the Visual Studio IDE is only available for Windows, but there are quite a few code editors which support some form of compiler integration, such as BBEdit ( http://www.barebones.com/
) , Alpha ( http://www.kelehers.org/alpha/
) and the now discontinued Pepper (url no longer available).
Ofcourse, you can always buy CodeWarrior ( http://www.metrowerks.com/
) they have special student pricing.
The CW IDE is not as fully fledged as VS.NET, in that it only supports C, C++, Obj-C and Pascal syntax (not html etc) but it does buy you code completion etc (from CW Pro 8)

The .NET CLR is not ported to the Mac and the Mac BU @ Microsoft has hinted that this will not happen in the near future as well, so you're out of luck there.
Of course, buying Virtual PC ( http://www.connectix.com/
) and running it on your Mac gives you the opportunity to run not too media-rich applications (i.e. no games) on your Mac. Before I got my PC, I briefly used VS.NET on virtual PC and it worked fine.
