    Just downloaded and installed Vim, and I really liked it. I hacked the core files to change the colour scheme; now its a black background with green writing which I think gives the software a very retro feel.
    Uhh... most normal people would just use .vimrc :p:

    I have heard that Visual Studio is generally acknowledged as the best IDE in the software industry as a general tool. Personally, I use Eclipse since I am teaching myself to program for Android and it seems to be the best supported in that area.

    Yeh, the ADT makes it stupid to attempt to develop Android apps in VS, even if VS handled Java natively.

    Visual Studio is my favourite for development on Windows in C/C++/.NET languages, then I use Notepad++ for web coding (HTML/JavaScript/PHP/etc).

    I used to use Dreamweaver back when it was version MX 2004 but I agree that it was bulky then and it's bulky now, though I will agree it has a few nicer features these days like automatic code-completion.

    pfft notepad.

    I don't open up anything codey unless it's with Notepad++ -- Simple, lightweight, there's a port version. Syntax highlights for you, etc.

    For things like PHP I usually open up NetBeans, and for Java I have Eclipse, just for a bit of an IDE.
