NetBeans has really come along this year and sports some very nice features so going to vote NetBeans even though I personally use Bluefish more often.

Well, guess I was too late for this - thought LQ was on EST but apparently is already 1pm in LQ land. Missed it by moments because I was composing text above instead of just voting. Boo!!

These are encouraging results. I think Eclipse has really swirled down the crapper the last few years. Conversely, Netbeans has really come up. I've been a Netbeans guy for the last 3 or 4 years. The only thing Eclipse does better (besides corrupt itself periodically, which nothing does a better job of that than Eclipse) is handle extremely large projects. This is the only advantage Eclipse has in my humble opinion. Once Netbeans gets better at handling large numbers of files, that is projects with several thousand source files, Eclipse can finally die.

I like Kdevelop for C and C++ work, but it has been a while since I've fired it up. I'm glad to see it's still around and popular.

By the way, I suck it up and use Netbeans because Eclipse is generally more frustrating, even for those large projects.
