    MSVC++ 2008 although I do still have DevC++ 4.992 installed I use it for test programs and like said above its handy for small single file programs too.

    I did have code::blocks but uninstalled it. And I agree with Bubba, 2003 is "deceprecated" as MS themselves like to put it I have had 2005 too at one point and found it to be good, I upgraded to 2008 at the turn of the year.

    M$ VC++ 2008 for me.

    I started using it about a month ago, only because I kept seeing Elysia recommending it to other people.

    And I can see why, it's GREAT!

    MSVC 2003 with Visual Assist (by Whole Tomato Software)

    MSVC 6 (for legacy apps)

    MSVC 2005 (for web based interfaces to browse our DBs or config our remote units as we do not give our the UID::PWDs)

    I am evaluating MSVC 2008 for new development.

    These are the only IDEs I have ever used comercially in the last 10 + years.

    Visual Assist does terrific wonders for IntelliSense. It's just a shame it costs so much.

    vim all the way. I find it's certainly faster for some things but other things it's a pain in the ass.

    I mainly use it because it's everywhere and very nice

    Everywhere except on non-UNIX systems.
    "very nice" is an interesting description of it. I have quite a few descriptive words for it too.

    There's gvim for non-UNIX systems. My boss uses it on XP nad has it customized like you wouldn't believe - very nice setup.

    MS IDEs are very nice and professional. At work they give us FlexBuilder / Eclipse preinstalled (we all do either Java or Flex) and recommend we use it, but I can't stand how sluggish it can be. That's my problem with MS as well.

    I prefer to use Notepad++ or a very lightweight editor (on Linux I use gedit, because it already has very nice syntax highlighting). That's all a matter of style, though.

    On a UNIX system I use vi. On other systems (read: Windows) I usually end up using the VS 2005 IDE or SciTE/Notepad++.

    same here , plus a visual studio 2008 .
    most of the time( almost always) i use CodeBlocks, because it is cross platform and available on linux, mac, windows and also it provides a GUI designer for Wxwidgets which again is a crossplatform C++ GUI toolkit! and... its just lovely!

    DevC++ for small projects, most of the time i use it to check my functions or class members to see whether they work or not!
