I use vi. Others use emacs. Some people use notepad. Still others use Notepad++. There are a few people who probably use an IDE....

My personal is Putty plus screen/byobu/tmux with multiple screens for Config, System, Modules, Standard, and otrs root, editing with vi. Then if I need to bounce between Modules and display, I can ctrl-a ctrl-a and keep everything open.
OTRS 5.0.x (private/testing/public) on Linux with MySQL database. Also on github.

It depends on.
For small code changes and dirty hacking I usually use vi.

For development itself I like my eclipse.
