My company does in-house C++ development for a couple of our server
products, especially where we need to take advantage of real-time
media streaming on Linux and Solaris. We use a lot of Java also,
mainly for the 'compile once, run anywhere' kind of thing, which for
the most part is fairly true. Most of our developers use Eclipse, I
use emacs and ant for my Java compiling :-)
