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."
