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.

I have no idea what you are talking about here.

I love Kdevelop! Kdevelop+Vi Input Mode="" (though ViIM needs to be more complete).

Geany is perfect. It has all features I need from an IDE, plus, its also light and speedy.

I voted for Kylix, but Lazarus will be better in their place.

Sorry I haven't replied before mate. I usually don't read replies for awards that often, because some can get too big very quickly

Anyway, I will try to give the latest netbeans a shot. A friend of mine is always talking about it and the improvements it has made. Definitely something I want to check out on my free time

GNU Emacs

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.

Missing Open Laszlo

My apologies that I did not get a nomination for Open Laszlo in on time.

This seems to be one of the simplest, straight forward tools for generating Flash Content, as well as a tool for creating Dynamic Html pages.

I've only scratched the surface. I know there is a ton of stuff I haven't dug into yet.

Geany. i don't use it as an IDE, but as a text editor for writing every text (including code).

Anjuta and Geany have made impressive progress last year and god lightweight IDEs. However voted for NetBeans because of the Ruby / Ruby on Rails support made available last year.
