This is like asking "what is the best rock and roll band?" or "what is the best soft drink?" or "what is the best religion?" There is no "best", although most people will tell you that their favorite is, indeed, the best.

Expect this post to be followed by any number of replies stating that no, in fact, so-and-so is the best. Don't listen to them -- try them out for yourself, and see what you like.

And you should change the topic title to something other than "ide". This whole forum is about IDEs. Select a title such that someone browsing through the list of forum posts can look at you title and tell what the discussion is about, something like "Best IDE for Java dev".

By the way, this question comes up constantly (there was one such discussion recently), so browse through the posts in the forum and you should find several (hopefully the people who posed the question provided an appropriate title so that you can spot the posts).

It is easy,
The best IDE is the one that blends IntelliJ, NetBeans, Eclipse, TextMate and CSSEdit together.
Damn, I got a new idea to implement...

Ahah! So you admit that your original question was not your real question. Unfortunately, we can't help you if you don't tell us what the real problem is.

i use netbeans, but i have difficulty in GUI design, not the codes. i mean, when i making a Graphical User Interface, sometimes the panels are moving,
then i place it back again. unlike VB6.0 when you place the panel/frame the other frame/panel/objects don't move. but i don't like VB6.0
i prefer java. but when i use absolute layout on a panel, it wont move the other panels inside it but i am not confident the panels are arranged
using absolute layout. is there any solution regarding GUI design in netbeans? because it consumes time when im placing the panels/buttons
back to their original place, it is more annoying when you have more panels/buttons/textfields in that design, then it scramble/not arranged
according to what suites my taste.

any help would be much appreciated. thanks

@Roldan: Please UseRealWords when posting: you typed everything out except the word "you", which is why you had to put inappropriate "code" tags around your text. It's not code, and "u" isn't a word. And please start new threads for new questions--your problem is completely unrelated to the original post.
