So for all my programmers out there I am still very new to the field. I just finished my second class but I do know C and C++. So to program for the last year I have been using Xcode as my main IDE. I know I have heard people say that it is not as easy or useful as others. Recently my buddies gave me Visual Studio Pro and I have been using that, and its nice. But I just want to know does anyone have any suggestions or good IDE's they know?

I have not seen anything that comes close to Visual Studio Pro and Ultimate, hands down that is the best I have used...

But Eclipse also has a nice package, and for embedded work IAR or Keil uVision

If you are doing 8051 assembly on a silicon labs chips their IDE is pretty nice.

it is also worth noting that the price is hard to beat of visual studio given the functionality...

There is also netbeans as well that I have heard that is good as well. Available for free for several platforms.
