Alternative .NET development without Visual Studio

This article, Road test: .NET development without Visual Studio: Builder AU: Program, on lists some alternative IDEs that you can use when developing .NET applications.

I'm already using SharpDevelop and find it very useful (and free!). The only snag is that you are not able to develop .NETCF (Compact Framework) applications under it. Is there any way to develop .NETCF applications without the full Visual Studio?
