PartCover - an alternative to NCover?

I've been looking for a cheap or free tool for measuring NUnit test coverage and just stumbled upon PartCover. I've installed it and fiddled with it and it seems to be an OK tool. It's Open Source, too - which I think is great.

I have to say, though, that the documentation is poor and the application itself is buggy (I experienced a critical exception when trying to save a coverage report to file). Despite this, I'll take a buggy PartCover over NCover which would set me back $650 for a license!

Might write more about this later. Check it out!
