Following a two-weeks poll, a first for the community site, the results for the development environment used by PHP-GTK developers are in.
Unsurprisingly, Eclipse and Zend Studio come ahead of the IDE pack (most PHP developers seem to favor the Zend-led Eclipse PDT over alternative plugins), with a major difference over the smaller players (from 25% for Zend Studio down to 4% for the next choice) Surprises are elsewhere:
- non-integrated editors, like Context, Bluefish, Weaverslave, and similar programmer editors rank second, at about the same level as Zend Studio
- the comparatively less well known French IDE PHPEdit is the
third most used IDE in the pack
- the brand new Delphi for PHP from Codegear (Borland),
although designed and sold as a web RAD for PHP enters at
the same rank as generic IDEs like Komodo and Dev-PHP-IDE

We'll see what the numbers will tell us next year.
