The Eclipse [Wikipedia] IDE has completely amazed me as I've been using it for my new Java project. I had learned Java/JSP development on the long-defunct Forte IDE from Sun. Forte was powerful but very quirky and has become pretty outdated, so it's nice to get on a more modern IDE. From my basic experience within .NET I think that Eclipse is at least comparable, but I've still considerable digging around to do.

I haven't looked at the C/C++ side of it yet (the C/C++ Development Toolkit). This article provides a simple overview of the C++ tools for Eclipse and points to a demo for configuring MinGW with the CDT. With this configuration, I'm not sure if I will also need gdb and make.
