Had I see this original post few months back, I'd not have known what Intellisense is, since I'd never used VisualStudio, however few months back I got a taste of it, thanks to Atmel Studio, which I use for some of my embedded projects using Atmel microcontrollers. Having been exposed (fair bit) to Eclipse, I was a bit wary of what the ~800MB of installation would do, but I must say it was a very pleasant surprise. My apprehensions of the productivity over-promise and under-delivery were put to rest. Since Atmel Studio can be used only for C/C++ programming for Atmel processors, I almost started missing it, when moving back to C/C++ and Java dev on Linux servers. It could be a case of puppy love, but there was the admission, and I thought I was married to vim.
Back to the suggestion (by Steve), of using ZBS. I've been using it quite a bit, and even tried the Koneki Eclipse LDT. They've managed to make the Eclipse LDT useful, interesting, and I look forward to what they might do with it in future but in the meantime, I've been most impressed with ZBS, especially because of Paul's dedication to it. It does have an impressive feature list, that is growing by the day and I believe Paul plans to improve code-navigation even further, based on my feature request discussions (on the list).
