Android IDE

Here's my question for a chance to win the Java/android book.

What IDE are people using for android development?

I like netbeans and have used this for a few things (PHP, web services, android...). I don't get on too well with Eclipse and things like Zend Studio but I do use them. Netbeans and android might have a few problems e.g. My PC bluescreens if I run the netbeans/emulator/iTunes but not the end of the world and I've not tested that in Eclipse/emulator/itunes

What do others prefer for code completion and debugging android applications.

p.s. Not that I need to use iTunes I just tend to work on this stuff at home and listen to music at the same time!

Eclipse and ADT here

Although I use IntelliJ at work and I prefer that, but I don't want to buy a license just so I can play with Android at home..
