I use it on OS X for Rust, C++ and F# development, where it works very nicely, thank you very much, even on my aged (early 2009) MacbookPro. I also use it on Windows, for Rust and small C++ projects and pretty much every other programming task that I can't/don't do in Visual Studio.

It is very much 'IDE lite' rather than just a text editor, but I do appreciate the code completion, the ability to build and (for Rust, at least) run tests without shelling out to a terminal.
Java, Basic, who cares - it's all a bunch of tree-hugging hippy cr*p
