    It's much better, with dynamic and quicker release cycle, and it's more about the fine details
    that make the everyday work easier. It also combines with lot of smart features
    (that IntelliJ users are use to since years).
    I evaluated for a customer last month the top CI tools and TeamCity won by far the race from
    all points of view. Bamboo is good to, but TC is simply brilliant.
    If you need something that is just "good enough" than of course Bamboo will to it too :) (other
    want however simply the best :) ).

    TeamCity does play well with all the other IDEs - even with .NET - see the website.

    No it's not. It's the very frequent argument here on Apache forums lists or blogs against
    some commercial products that have open source alternatives (but don't have such big corporations
    behind) :) .
