Well, I was just talking from personal experience. Like I say, I only used it in a work environment for project where it was only me and another team member working on the same project. It worked great but we were both on windows (though, I did work at home with the same project on linux...again, fine)
No, I can't say I've used a huge amount of IDEs. I used an IBM one for java about 15 years ago, Powerbuilder I think. It sucked. I've used Visual Studio from about version 5. The changes MS make nowadays are just pointless and are done merely to sell new version, whereas following eclipse for the last few years, it seems to get better.
I might have to have a look at QT Creator and IntelliJ though...but I like the fact that eclipse compiles for both languages and learning a new interface just seems like time wasted when I could be hacking-away!
