View Poll Results: IDE/Web Development Editor of the Year
Eclipse is still better, next comes Netbeans.
Interestingly, since 2007 Eclipse is gaining strongly into Embedded area. Most of the ARM boards come with Elipse out of the box IDE. Cool. Or, people can download Eclipse and scale up with CDT, EMF etc.
How can we choose an IDE tool that is linked with a CASE tool and give us the power to develop and release applications that are OS, GUI, RDBMS, processors independent. If exist this environment let me know.
I spent some time learning emacs - it really paid off!!!!!
I invested a lot of time learning Emacs before GUI based editors were widely available - in the early eighties. I learned Vi around the same time. When I am doing development, using GNU Emacs really pays off. As an IDE, it can be installed on any development platform that I use. Years ago, it was a heavy consumer of resources. These days, it is modest in size, especially compared to the large Web browsers and Personal Information Managers (PIMs) that are common.
It is free, easily extended, and extremely capable. Even more so as an IDE than as just a text editor, when I am in IDE mode, GNU Emacs all the way.
