I use Visual Studio Code

I use code::blocks, QtCreator and eclipse (but always an older version as they are more stable). Code::blocks is not really suitable for really large projects as the indexing grinds to a halt.

NetBeans for me, my favourite by the code I use to write (PHP and Java), but when using C I loved QT creator.

IntelliJ IDEA. There has never been better IDE for Java and I doubt there will be soon.

mainly working with emacs (plus some extension scripts)... it's still the fastest and most versatile way to write and edit code for me; especially if you also work on the documentation, configuration, scripts, ... other IDEs are too focused on a single language and totally ignore that there's a lot more than some source-code files to create and maintain a program..

sometimes using Qt-creator (mainly when doing stuff for android)....

for simple single file "projects" vim or mousepad.

Eclipse all the way

IntelliJ Idea and Pycharm – at work and at home for Java, Kotlin, Rust and Python. Haven’t ever used a better IDE (though, it has limited features outside of JVM world, eg. no debugging for Rust).

Beside it I normally use two editors:

vim – for simple text editing, mostly changing some config files.

Kate – if I’m forced to do some changes to some bigger shell or js codebase.

And I used to use Code::Blocks back at the university for C and C++ projects – but never really did anything big in them, requiring more complex refactoring, so not sure if I’d recommend it now as a full-blown IDE. It’s simple, and works well for smaller things.

Never felt the need for a full blown IDE, but then I don't code GUI applications where perhaps an IDE is very well suited (at least that is what I've heard). So I'm only using Gedit and nano.

Less GUI, more size and complexity of codebase I think. Depends on your definition of an IDE too. I'm still using qt-creator for example (emacs too, depends what I'm working on), but only for the indexing and code completion. All compiling, debugging, etc, is done via command line.
