Which IDE is the best?
Posted on:March 06 2014
I'm currently updating and rebuilding a few libraries I wrote years ago, and my software and even software of some of my customers is depending on. To ensure the widest possible compatibility, I'm using for that a quite range of IDEs: Visual Studio 6, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2013, Code::Blocks, XCode 2, 3, 4, 5 and even raw make files. It's not that easy, because not every IDE works on every operating system anymore. But my experience so far is this, surprisingly:
Visual Studio 6 is still the best and fastest of all of those. In my opinion. It gets its job done, it has a clean user interface without all the clutter, and it is incredible fast. Don't get me wrong, I really like Visual Studio 2012 - some its new features are impressive - but an IDE which simply gets out of the way, lets me do my job, and doesn't require tons of memory just to start up - like Visual Studio 6 - is also a very nice-to-have.
