    Let's show ourselves our E-Penis. What IDE (Integrated Development Environment, for the guys who just clicked for fun) or text editor are you using for programming/coding and the sorts?

    I use Eclipse CDT for my C++ stuff, and Notepad++ for coding and looking at source files I don't need to work with.
    Because I don't want to get eye cancer, I use darker themes. Sadly you can only change the eclipse editor colors, but not the general background and that sorts, if you don't change the system theme itself. That's why I like linux.
    Have some pictures:





    Font is Consolas (comes with visual studio) and font size 8/9.

    I use whatever. Mostly vim, sometimes gedit, notepad++, scite, or wordpad. I occasionally decide I'm going to give something like MSVC, Code::Blocks, Eclipse, Kdevelop, or Anjuta a shot but, inevitably, I just go back to my assortment of text editors out of sheer laziness.

    Using mostly unchanged Notepad++, so no need for a screenshot.
    I tried going all black background for a while but it made me sleepy.

    I did customize some colours a bit at one point, but some languages (Gmod Lua for example) required more faffing than necessary.

    I also have a largely unchanged VS 2008, VS 2010 and Netbeans. I think the only difference in NetBeans is my comment colour, I love me that VS green commenting.

    I don't know why people change skins and colours. Doesn't it annoy you when you reinstall windows having to revert to all these non standard things because you're not used to the standard stuff? Isn't that time you could spend coding instead of fucking about with stuff that doesn't matter?

    Well, I think it's just nicer with a skin, I can do it without, but it's more pretty when you have it.

    It only takes a few minutes to install a theme, though. Especially if you have the theme files (or whatever) backed up on a separate drive.

    Both VS2010 and notepad++ support importing and exporting all your custom settings. So you only have to do it once as long as you keep a backup of the settings somewhere. If you mean windows themes though, I guess so. I prefer the standard theme in windows.

    I just don't understand why you can't use the default theme/colours/settings. Is it so terrible?

    What if you get a real job programming and have to look at a colleague's computer and can't read his code because his screen isn't black with green text on it.

    I really don't understand why you'd take the time to fuck around with that stuff. Maybe I've grew out of it. I used to change my desktop theme and arrange my icons. I used to have the taskbar at the top, and the side, and have it auto hiding. Now when I see someone has changed that stuff it just makes them seem ridiculous - changing stuff, not because it's any better - just because they can, to prove they know how. Like anyone would be impressed.

    Mine's always been the default theme because I CBA to install a new one that looks better - the current one looks fine.

    I prefer a dark scheme myself, mainly because it doesn't strain my eyes as with a bright / white / default scheme. When it's late in the evening and I'm looking, sometimes even staring at my code, can give me a headache.

    I don't change it because it's the only way I can look at code, but because it doesn't hurt my eyes as much as when there's a white background burning with black text at a 5000:1 contrast.

    also, the default eclipse color theme looks like shit
