Yes. Even I have ADT/Eclipse up and running and I'm completely Java disabled. The lack of Android support or plugins so far for Netbeans is a little annoying, perhaps whoever gets up and running first gets the developer interest.

You could always use Mono in Visual Studio. Failing that, you could use something like Phonegap in Visual Studio.
I've been meaning to get around to evaluating Appcelerator Titanium. Looking into it superficially, there are certain advantages to it as it compiles down to native code, but it's a closed SDK so you couldn't use it with things like jQuery.
I was brought up to respect my elders. I don't respect many people nowadays.
At least submits this guy his code. Still bad behavior but better than them who are only writing an exception message and post it. IDK but suppose that there are not enough hamsters to answer questions like "AccessDeniedException comes up when trying to delete system32 HELP URGENZZ Teacher will kill me!!!!!!!!!!!!!".
As others have suggested I use Eclipse with the ADT plugin.
I installed everything on a new machine this week and noticed that google now have an all in one package - Eclipse, ADT, latest android SDK - just extract from the archive and you're good to go. Beats having to set it all up manually
For me, it always comes down to what kind of support resources are available and how deep they are (i.e. how esoteric of a question can I find an answer for). That almost always leads me to the language and IDE environment recommended by the creators, because it usually has the largest user base. In this case, Eclipse and Java. Besides, its really all about the libraries, and you'll likely be learning them no matter what language and IDE you choose.
So that's what I'd recommend, even for an old, grey haired accountant who knows some Java
We can program with only 1's, but if all you've got are zeros, you've got nothing.
