I assume the "Komodo" choice is Komodo Edit, not Komodo IDE (which is AFAIK not open source).

Komodo Edit is great on Windows, but the last time I used it on Linux (which was many years ago), it had absolutely horrid font rendering. I tried to do my own build but wasn't successful.

There are a lot of new accounts recommending Lazarus.

Im one of this new user. I do use lot of programation languages (from assembler to C++) and i realy prefer to develop in Pascal. And Lazarus has a fantastic code editor, the best for Pascal users. For graphic widgetsets, you have the choice of LCL (who links with GTK2 or Qt) or fpGUI or msei who are pure pascal widgetsets and links directly with X11.

Fair enough. I didn't realize there were so many Pascal programmers.

Lazarus truly is a marvelous piece of engineering. Truly worth a second and third look.

What I a am confused about is what it is doing in the Web Development category?!! Maybe I need to take another look. Are people actually developing web sites with Lazarus out there? Wouldn't surprise me. Using the Brook Framework maybe?

In fact, if you really consider what FredVs was pointing out about FPgui, shouldn't you add Lazarus to the "Window Manager of the Year"? Haha When it sinks in that you can program without Qt or Gtk or without even a window manager in FreePascal, and on top of that, via many different avenues (Fpgui, MseIDE, CustomDrawn etc). This means that your app, since you are doing all the drawing directly to X11 OR GDI, you can be confident your app looks the same wherever it is hosted.

Oh, and FredVs is one of the "pioneers" in this area, btw.

I wish I could vote for two. I love Lazarus for GUI programming, but Geany hits a sweet spot formerly held by SciTE for pure Pascal coding. Out of habit I use Nano for Bash scripting. That would probably qualify as a BAD habit

Emacs!

I love Emacs, I'm relatively new to coding and when I looked at the main IDE's (meaning things like Kdevelop, Eclipse etc) I found myself just trying to learn the IDE rather than learning (in my case) C++, fired up Emacs and I'm coding away like a happy little code elf

Geany

I rarely use an IDE, but when I do, I prefer Geany. Use only directed. Please code responsibly.

For more complex stuff, like web-based applications, I am forced to use an IDE. I've tried many and netbeans seems the one that is least annoying. I have no idea what the target audience is for Eclipse or Emacs: both just make me curse from start to finish. Not a single function/`feature' is in a spot where I would expect it.
From my experience, if I had to guess... the target audience for Eclipse is Winwoes Java coders who don't want to have to pay for a commercial Java IDE. Emacs as an IDE appeals to those already familiar with Emacs keybindings and willing to go the extra mile to tweak it to the requisites of the task/project at hand. Ditto for those using Vi/m. Indeed, the "Pragmatic Programmer" makes an excellent case for ditching fancy IDE's in favor of the latter.

I don't do much coding these days but was quite favorably impressed with Netbeans back when I was running Nevada and then OpenSolaris as my desktop. Post Oracle takeover, and the ensuing screwing, I came to distrust _anything_ out of Oracle, and presumed that, like OpenSolaris and a few other Sun FOSS offerings, that Oracle would eventually kill the project. Nice to hear Netbeans is alive and well. Will have to take a look.

Emacs but no vim? Do you seek battle?
