A white background and dark text looks cleaner, for about 5 minutes.  For long periods a darker background is far far more comfortable on the eyes - especially at night.

Of course the next question to ask after What is your fave IDE - is why?  What features make it your fave?
Windows 10, 64-bit, 16Gb RAM, CPU Intel i5, 3.2 GHz, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 (2Gb).
MacOS Catalina, 64-bit, 8Gb RAM, CPU Intel i5, 2.3 Ghz, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 1536 MB.
Linux Mint 19.2, 64-bit, 16Gb RAM, CPU Intel i5, 3.2 GHz, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 (2Gb).
Raspberry pi4 4Gb RAM

I just use whats there, though, I enjoy using B4x's IDE, its pretty much setup like VB, but a little more basic, but, thats why I like it, your not drowned in bollocks that you'll never use.

Blide is an obvious choice of IDE's for Blitz, its basically that sort of level of quality all BRL's languages should of been bundled with, but instead we got the same sorta setup over and over and nothing really changed while other "indie" type languages were getting better in that department.

I like to have a play with a bit of app->server->app shenanigans, and obviously writing scripts, then uploading them over and over is a pain, even if you write a little batch file to FTP the files up... So when I found ICEcoder (https://icecoder.net/),  I found that awesome, yeah, you miss out on more advanced features, but for me, coding scripts through the browser then just saving it was a joy... Highly recommended!

On Linux, I like Geany, I always plump for that if working with a desktop, console only, I dont mind Nano, it is was it is and does the job of enterage of text... So yeah, mixed bag for me!

SharpDevelop 5.1  (It is C# and I know it is old but it is really good!)

Raylib (No Messing about with Compiler Options like you do with Allergo or SDL or SFML as install Raylib then look the code example then run the program! That it! If you change the code then save it then run it!)

jMonkeyEngine(installed it and look example program and run it and that it!) but it not my fav ide thought.

That Aptana looks nice, but, I'll stick with ICECoder on my server, if it aint broke and all that! ;)

On about text editors, I did write one years ago for webbased stuff, not sure if Qube remembers it, I named it Sanitary Pad... I thought it was funny! :P

Inner child and all that! :P

maybe some of you will laugh at it, but i worked on a project using a computer, with a guy who was in his sixties, and to prevent tiring of his eyes, he used something like this :

 8)
(never tried, but why not...)

That is most awesome looking, especially if you have to hot desk. Otherwise - turn the contrast, birghtness and that down to what is comfortable for you. This helps to reduce eye strain  :)

Was it down to the fact it kept your eyes from watering thru tiredness - love it!

IDEal still wins - apart from the minor grumble (that I keep forgetting about....) it can use the 'last' place you used as a compilation target - as opposed to your current one. Easy to resolve if you code regularly - I'm sporadic as hell these days coding, which doesn't help

Ideal when i was in blitz3d
Blide when im on blitzmax

Blide is not bad.
But the developer didn't add buttons for going back and forth in locations where you were
So I need to suffer this stupidity and get along.
I never understood people who charge money for their products and than forgot to add one simple thing to their project that is so essential
