    Visual Studio 2008...
    If you can get it I don't think you can really top it.

    for windows, I like Visual Studio 2005 or 2008, but for any other platform, NetBeans really does it for me.

    Besides Visual Studio, I use the cross platform Code::Blocks, and a lightweight IDE named Geany functions as my normal text editor, though I also use Notepad++.

    Code::Blocks, Dev-Cpp on Windows. On Linux, I stick to Kwrite+gcc.

    Visual Studio because it features all that features I need, and some other useful tools, too. Plus it has a debugger, all in one package. Very handy.
    It's also the only IDE and debugger that I'm familiar with.

    Code::Blocks for larger things, wxDev-Cpp for smaller things (particularly single-file programs). Also Notepad++ (just viewing things and other languages).
    I might be wrong.

    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.

    Funny enough I tried Visual Studio 2003 recently and I reckon that 6.0 was better. A good example was just trying to open a text file for reference, in 6.0 this would open the built-in text editor, whereas in 2003 it ShellExecutes instead (bringing up Notepad). If I wanted that I would've used the Run dialog.

    But yeah, VS all the way.

    Strange. At least 2008 doesn't do that. Or at least VS doesn't do it for ME.

    In Windows I use Visual Studio and for plain text editing I use notepad++.

    In Linux I just use vim and gcc.

    Visual Studio 2005 or 2008. 2003 is old, clunky, and intellisense and the function browser are 50% functional at best.

    For Windows based development I don't think you can top Visual Studio 2008. To be fair it's not because Borland cannot make a better IDE but because they have chosen not to. And with as many years as they have been off the scene they would have a tremendous amount of 'catch-up' to do to match MSVS.
