I’ve been working with Zend Studio for quite a while now. And actually, I was pretty happy with Zend Studio aka Eclipse. If you install Zend Studio you’ll get a very nice integrated development environment with everything a programmer needs: a text editor (well, that’s no surprise), a built in debugger, a ready to use profiler, SVN client, and so on.
However, I really hate Zend Studio when in comes to performance. It takes ages to start up (and believe me, I have a pretty fast machine here) and if Eclipse is updating its whatsoever-files you can start your coffee break because the text editor gets freakingly slow.
I don’t want to repeat what you can on Stuarts post, so let me conclude this article with some bullet points:
- Installing Sublime Text 2 is very easy
- You’ll find hundreds of plugin to fit Sublime Text 2 to your needs
- And most of all: Sublime Text 2 is extremely fast
