Most people haven't heard about "Source Insight" but I like it. Do you use a little-known IDE and why do you like it?
I use Source Insight as my primary IDE.
I like it because:
- It starts quick (so that exiting, renaming code directories, and starting doesn't take long)
- It is extensible (so it can syntax highlight internal file formats and parse output of other programs)
- It is easy to learn: Just start it and you can start editing files.
- I started using it before I even heard of many of the current "big names". I started using it in 1997 or 1998. The small install was beneficial when I would install it on a lab machine in college and it would be removed within a few days.
