Don't get my wrong, I love Sublime, but it wastes so much time to discover you have trivial syntax errors like a missing semicolon or mismatched parenthesis only during compile on another computer, rather than just using an IDE that tells you about it the moment you make the mistake.

Let me know if you find a light-weight, robust editor. Eclipse doesn't count.

Eclipse is total garbage. I like Xcode. I've heard JetBrains makes good IDEs.

THANK YOU!

I don't know why so many people like Eclipse. I hate it. I'd use Visual Studio over Eclipse and I don't care for Visual Studio.

I think there's something wrong with our configurations. At work, people always notice how painfully slow Eclipse behaves on my computer relative to theirs. We all have comparable machines running basically the same programs... yet there's something that causes Eclipse on my computer to eat RAM and CPU like nothing else.

But besides the abysmal performance, I just don't like the interface. I don't understand the tabs + sidebar approach a lot of programs use... what do tabs offer that the sidebar doesn't?

The Linux recommendation makes no sense. Is he suppose to cross compile to a OS X binary on a Linux box, why? Is the target Linux? I don't think so, nothing in the original post mentioned it.

Don't use Eclipse...

If you want Vim with a user interface, you should take a look at Chocolat.
They have a Vim mode. (apart from that I also like the app)

I'm not a fan of Eclipse, but what do you dislike about Visual Studio?

It's so… IT.

You know, how you'd get a two-page document titled "Setting Up Your Visual Studio Environment" with the Company's Tested & IT Department-Approved Configuration™.

*barf*

IT departments love that ****. Programmers don't.

I just think its a sloppy bloated program. I've used it since Visual Studio 6 and right now at work I hop between Visual Studio 2010 and 2012.

Intellisense is flakey, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, its a coin toss. Same goes for right clicking on a function or class to go to the definition. This rarely works (even after a brand new reimage).

There are also the strange inconsistencies like if I am creating a site using html + asp.net sometimes the site will open fine, other times it won't, even if the code has never changed (I already ruled out a computer issue since it happens with the same project on multiple machines).

It just feels like a sloppy program even after all these years.

TFS works great though.

EDIT: As the years go buy I see Xcode get more awesome, and Visual Studio get more bloated :/

JetBrains makes wonderful IDEs, at least for Java.. I vastly prefer IDEA to Eclipse, I haven't used AppCode(their Objective-C/C++ IDE), but it may be worth a look.

I'm looking forward to Android Studio (based on IntelliJ IDEA) replacing Eclipse with the ADT plugin. As that is the only reason I'm using Eclipse right now.

I can't respond well on most of that. I don't know Visual Studio that well, but it doesn't seem that bad. I used it in a course I took a while ago. I do prefer Xcode, but I think it's partly that I gravitate toward OSX when I have a choice.
