I don't do much programming in languages other than Java, but I like JEdit. It's free and not too slow to load up. It says it supports languages other than Java.

Eclipse has plugins for C/C++ and comes standard with the JDT plugin which is for Java development. Now if you are looking for a Visual type IDE, like Visual Studio, for all languages then no. That would be way too much for 1 IDE in my opinion.

Eclipse is a good approximation. Not only does it handle Java and C/C++ but there is some work in progress to implement a C# plugin which you can run if you download the .Net framework. I personally enjoy very much Eclipse's modular extensible nature. Within Eclipse you also have access to a wealth of SD tools (pattern interfaces, GUI generators, metric calculators, etc).

I find the komodo ide quite convenient. It is from activestate.com (approx. 21MByte to download) and comes for a 29USD fee personal license - not free literally, but very affordable with a 30 day trial period. Main focus are scripting languages (perl, python, tcl) but others are supported as well. Actually, it is my present favorite

I was using Netbeans for a long time (from http://www.netbeans.org/) and now later eclipse. At the moment i work with WSAD (websphere studio)and although built on top of eclipse (it is actually eclipse) i find it a bit heaveier. wasnt sure personally which of the features are part of eclipse and which are added on top.

JCreator is free, though with some missing features such as Code Completion, which is a biggy for me since I can't type.
They have a shareware version that is good for 30 executes with all the bells and whistles and they have the freeware version that lacks some features.

I[m using Eclipse and it`s a good IDE. I like it a lot... Mainly because you have loads of plug-ins that help you to improve the functionalities of core Eclipse.

I think Intellij IDEA is a good IDE. It includes many intelligent features.
