1.


2. IntelliJ IDE and WebStorm

As additional data points: every developer at my previous three jobs used/uses a Mac. Except for a handful who used Sublime Text, all used one of (or both of) IntelliJ and WebStorm.

Nope.

Were your original questions just a round-about way of asking this single question?

If the default shortcut causes conflicts, just change it to something else.

I switched from Windows to Mac a couple of months back
Using Eclipse as our IDE. I have heard a lot of positive things about intelliJ. I did try it too, but I couldn't convince myself over the shortcuts in it and hence switched back to Eclipse.

The default shortcut for eclipse for block comment in Mac is (Ctrl + CMD + /) not (CMD + shift + /)
As Bear suggested, you can change it to whatever you want.

Mac OS X: Nope! Windows 10 and at work I currently have Ubuntu 16.04. I've had a MacBook Pro, but I just could not get used to Mac OS X, so I sold it. I didn't find it very user friendly at all (despite that people are claiming it's more user friendly than Windows). For example: Why is it so hard to copy / cut and paste files from one directory to another in Mac's Finder?

IDE: IntelliJ IDEA. A few years ago I did a project at a client who had a license server for IntelliJ, so I tried out IntelliJ (had been using Eclipse for a long time before that). Like many people I'm now a fan of IntelliJ and I bought a license for the ultimate version.

Which part you find difficult?

However, I find this operation having more advantage on OS X over the Windows. Because:
1. Once you click cmd + c (which puts text/file on memory)
2. During the another consequent operation you sill have a choice either you want to paste or cut, while on windows you're dependent on the first pushed combination.

That means in case you change your mind on the last step, you have this ability without repeating step one, while on Windows this isn't on option.

I seem to remember this was an issue in Snow Leopard and earlier.  See this discussion

It is years ago since I used Mac OS X, and maybe in current versions it's better. But I remember that in the version I used it wasn't straightforward to cut / copy and paste files from one directory to another. You had to open two Finder windows and then drag and drop. Much more cumbersome than Ctrl + X for cut, Ctrl + C for copy and Ctrl + V for paste.
I seem to remember this was an issue in Snow Leopard and earlier.

I think the last version I used before selling my MacBook Pro was Snow Leopard.

Always been a Unix / Linux man myself so switched over last year and not looked back.  Windows became too "tablet" focused, so happy to leave it behind - remember gorilla arm?

Use IntellJ and often STS.  Still use VIM, took too long to learn so I'm not giving it up yet.

Addicted To vi (with apologies to Robert Palmer)

You press the keys with no effect,
Your mode is not correct.
The screen blurs, your fingers shake;
You forgot to press escape.
Can't insert, can't delete,
Cursor keys won't repeat.
You try to quit, but can't leave,
An extra "bang" is all you need.

You think it's neat to type an "a" or an "i"--
Oh yeah?
You won't look at emacs, no you'd just rather die
You know you're gonna have to face it;
You're addicted to vi!

You edit files one at a time;
That doesn't seem too out of line?
You don't think of keys to bind--
A meta key would blow your mind.
H, J, K, L?  You're not annoyed?
Expressions must be a Joy!
Just press "f", or is it "t"?
Maybe "n", or just "g"?

Oh--You think it's neat to type an "a" or an "i"--
Oh yeah?
You won't look at emacs, no you'd just rather die
You know you're gonna have to face it;
You're addicted to vi!

Might as well face it,
You're addicted to vi!

You press the keys without effect,
Your life is now a wreck.
What a waste!  Such a shame!
And all you have is vi to blame.

Oh--You think it's neat to type an "a" or an "i"--
Oh yeah?
You won't look at emacs, no you'd just rather die
You know you're gonna have to face it;
You're addicted to vi!

Might as well face it,
You're addicted to vi!
