Have I with LO?  No, not yet.  But I've only just started with the LO 
codebase.  No offense intended, but I will try it myself first. 
Software (and hardware!) configurations can vary wildly even within a 
single distribution, meaning that where one developer struggles, another 
might have great success.

In response to the original question, I intentionally kept a very even 
keel about the editors/IDEs available.  Though I personally can work 
well in a number of environments, I also have my preferred environments 
for certain situations and code bases.  Coding is such an individual 
activity (outside of XP of course), that I think it foolhardy to push 
one's environment as "the best".

In this vein, I standby my original statement:

"Picking the right programming environment is often a never-ending 
journey, but certainly not one that someone else can choose for you."
