it was tempting, especially after installing

YES, YES, YES! Out-of-the-box usable code completion in the Samba code 
base. Functions, structs, macros, everything just worked what in my 
Emacs setup works for a few weeks and then breaks again for some reason 
after updating one component or another.

The biggest showstopper was: it's just BIG and offers A LOT, so getting 
to know it would take me too much time. But this is really the first IDE 
that looks capabable of rivaling Emacs.
