XP SP3 and EditPad Lite sometimes with notepad on the side
AkelPad (Windows), which starts out as a notepad replacement but is very configurable and extensible with to-the-point plugins. The only problem is, when you want to achieve something not immediately obvious nor covered by the documentation, that the community/forum is predominantly Russian.

Only good thing that microsoft ever came up with: Visual Studio. Most coders i know stayed with VS once they used it the first time. It´s just the best you can get for all purposes. The complexity can be overwhelming at first, but most coders hardly use 10% of its possibilities because most stuff is for a specific language or alike, so one doesn´t need it anyway.
Once you have customised your VS to your needs i guess you will stick to it aswell.

OS is Win7 here, sadly...but reality is that most useful programs only work under win only! :(

Pure text-editor is notepad++ here, as it´s a mighty tool for all needs...can even be used as nfo-viewer, while i prefer DAMN!-nfoViever for that purpose.

DanLemon: throw away that MonoDevelop...go Unity5 and use VS natively ;) Since Xamarin "tightened up" monoDevelop it´s garbage! Will never go back to this mess for sure!
I haven't updated my Unity in a long time, I guess I will find this tightened up Monodevelop when I get around to updating ;) Think I'm still using Unity 4 point something.. not had much time recently to work on my apps though

VS2013 premium, Notepad++, Win7pro

Although I might as well have said Potato, Wheelbarrow, Cheesegrater for the amount of coding I'm doing these days.

Well, Unity4 has the possibility to use VS aswell, via PlugIn, while for Unity5 they bought the guy and his PlugIn and integrated it completely.

for c++ there is nothing better than VS so far , i am using vs2008 , its really fast ,i find the new versions >= 2013 slow & takes long time to lunch & needs many GB's on hd(just like an os) , with no benefits , the speed of the code generated is the same vs2008 vs vs20xx .
