Visual Studio with Visual Assist X Alternatives (C++)





snowboardalliance
So at my job we use Visual Studio for development (C++ mostly) and we can use the company licenses to Visual Assist X. Anyway, it's just an internship and I'm starting to think about my personal tools and what I should use on my computer.

I really like the stuff that Visual Assist adds. The syntax highlighting is 10x better than the default VS2008 (and VS2010 from what I've seen). Basically it can color user-defined types and variables whereas VS will just make that all black. Also, the refactoring stuff seems cool although not a complete necessity. It is nice for renames and changes like that. Mostly I like the better auto-complete (because intellisense sucks and frequently can't find any methods).

So I've used Code::Blocks a lot at home but being a student, I can get VS2010 for free. However, Code::Blocks has the same syntax highlighting issues as default VS. I have Eclipse but I've only used it for Java. I also have NetBeans but never really used it. I am wondering which of these free editors + plugins people would recommend to get the nice bonuses of Visual Assist. I'm guessing Eclipse would have tons of plugins for this but I want some recommendations as to the "best" set up from your experience.
