Visual Studio?

What platform(s) do you want to target, and what are you programming on?

I've become fond of Komodo Edit recently, and there's a full fledged IDE version of it, if you want to pay some money. I've heard good things about Eclipse though I've never used it. NetBeans was good for the Ruby on Rails programming I did a year ago. If you want something a little more old school Notepad++ is great.

What's offered on MSDNAA is up to your educational establishment, though I assume it would be Visual Studio. You can download free versions of their IDEs here.

For a general-purpose text editor I'd recommend Programmer's Notepad 2; it uses the same text editor component as Notepad++, but doesn't have the god-awful UI. Smile

I use Eclipse. It is plugin-extensible, and it exists for multiple languages.

It's a bit RAM and CPU consuming, though...
