Misc : Number of IDE's for development

So many IDE’s on my desktop just has to lead to confusion.

Eclipse 3.1 for basic Java
Weblogic Workshop for Internet stuff
Blackberry 4.0.2 for Blackberry development
Visual Studio 2003 for .NET, C++, CF, PPC and Smartphone.
eVC++ 3.0 and eVC++ 4.0 for older mobiles
Java Studio Mobility for J2ME

And yes, most of them are used most of the time! Gets really confusing when you have more than one open at the same time especially if they require different languages.

That’s 11 platforms – can anyone beat that?

Notice the only real gap is Visual Basic – I’m not a big fan.
