I tried out netbeans years ago and wasn't too impressed. I went back to vim + command line pretty quickly. I started using eclipse two years ago and don't really see any reason to switch. I might check out netbeans again but it'll have to be pretty good to get me to transition over.

Neither one of those for C++. Visual Studio all the way. JCreator LE for java.

I would argue that Eclipse is one of the best IDEs when it comes to Java. JCreator Pro costs money, and JCreator LE lacks code completion and plugins.

Also the fact that Eclipse works on OS X and Linux is nice. :)

Am I the only person in the world who cannot stand IDE's written in Java? Or at least their interface?
For me, every time I switch OS's I have a different IDE. I know it sounds like work, and it could be if I didn't use each OS for different stuff.
For Mac OS I use XCode,
on Linux I use KDevelop,
and on Windows I use VisualStudio.

I'm drooling over the prospect of QtCreator, though. I can't wait until they iron out some of the bugs (like crashing when the code-complete pops up and I press tab.) Since QT provides libs for both C++ and Java I think it will serve many people's needs.

My IDE of choice actually changes as opposed to the language which I'm writing in, for example:

C/C++/Objective-C => Xcode on mac, GEdit on linux
PHP/Javascript => Dreamweaver
REALBasic => The RB editor (Fancy that)
Java => Netbeans

((I do however have a copy of Eclipse on this machine, I'm still trying to find a use for it.))

Why not try them both and then decide for yourself?
Everybody has different tastes.
