    Web Matrix Project (Free) (ASP.NET )

    The ASP.NET Web Matrix Project

    ASP.NET Web Matrix is a community-supported, easy-to-use WYSIWYG application development tool for ASP.NET. It can be installed via a quick 1.2 MB download (about 5 minutes using a 56Kb modem). Best of all

    Looks like a "lite" version of Visual InterDev.NET, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Note that the 1.2 MB download doesn't include the prerequisite .NET framework, which is up to a 20 MB download if you don't already have it installed. I think web matrix is a good idea for MS, since it gives people who wouldn't install a full web application development environment a cheap and quick way to get started with .NET.

    I haven't used Web Matrix, but I've read some comments on it. It sounds good at first, but many of the comments I've run across say that it's pretty difficult to use because it doesn't have intellisense. The .NET Framework contains something to the tune of 6000 objects. WIthout intellisense, it's pretty difficult to refer to the correct object and their properties if you don't know them.
