KDE "The KDevelop team is proud and happy to announce that KDevelop 4.0 is finally available as stable release. KDevelop comes with lots of innovative features, even though many features from the 3.5 series were dropped due to a nearly complete rewrite. In particular the developers have focused on building an excellent C++ IDE instead of trying to integrate lots of languages and features halfheartedly. Of course KDevelop 4 also builds an excellent basis for other languages, the best proof for that is the PHP plugin that is released alongside KDevelop 4.0. KDevelop 4.0 has an excellent C++ code understanding engine, which allows the IDE to understand your code better than you do, and which is then used to assist you by releasing you from tiresome tasks."

Visual Studio is the single best IDE in existance with the most integration of advanced features.

Is that supposed to be a joke? When I first started coding in Visual Studio I was completely shocked at how little it did in comparison to the Java IDE's i was used to working with. Luckily I found Resharper (add another $150 to the cost) which added back in most of the missing functionality.

I'll admit that VS2008 isn't bad, it seems like every new release now adds in the features that Resharper gave the previous one, and it's much better than it used to be. But I'd hardly call it the pinacle of IDE's that all others should strive to match.
