Is VS really the best IDE available, or is it riddled with lots and lots of annoying bugs that distract developers from doing what they should be?


That would be IntelliJ IDEA ... the IDE from which 95% of the good bits of Eclipse, has been copied.

IDEA is so clever it is sometimes scary; until I got used it, I often used to stare at the screen thinking:

'Yeah, that's exactly what I wanted ... but how did YOU know that is exactly what I wanted.'
