Are you saying that if I buy SlickEdit, someone will pay me $19,500 for
the first month I use it? :-)

But seriously, I find it hard to justify purchasing an IDE when
  1) I have a very tight budget
  2) Nobody pays me to program
  3) There are tools that I am quite happy with that I don't have to pay
     anything for.

Wow, a responsive software company, those are getting to be an 
increasingly rare breed.  I have to deal with way too many unresponsive
ones at work.

For the record, I use jed in X-Windows as my 'IDE'.  I find that doing the
editing in one window, and the compilation/error log in another (with
the gnome panel neatly minimized in the corner) far more efficient than
error highlighting ever was for me.  Your milage, of course, may vary.
