VS2019 Enterprise, mostly because that's what they offer at work.

We use it because my team mainly writes in C#. I myself also maintain both the front and back ends of a small web UI in addition to (read: instead of) the main product, the backened is also written in C# so I use VS for that project as well - but despite all of that, most of my actual total workload is on the frontend for that website, so I end up spending like 85% of my time writing JS in VS of all things like an actual masochist :huh:

For me, it's steam chat in big picture mode.

The entire JetBrains family. I will go thru trouble to streamline my workflow and make it work with those IDEs. I refuse to code without them.
For quick editing I guess notepad++ on windows and vi on other platforms.
I prefer JetBrains whenever possible. I use VSCode on my MacBook Air because Apple think it’s a good idea to sell $1000 laptops with 8GB of RAM in 2022 (when I bought it) and 2024

If it's not possible to run the thing, I'll just buy a laptop capable of running one and file it under company expenses. Though, I probably will just use my monster PC to code and use the laptop to SSH only.

It's fine for small stuff but anything medium sized or up and it starts to not have a fun time

Guess it depends on how many plugins you want to run as well. I remember it running quite ok on my shitty laptop with 4 gigs of memory for a decently sized project (40k lines) + server deployment for debugging (directly from pycharm) + some extra stuff (browser, music, excel).

Damn it was almost a decade ago.
