Maybe we should just wait till sep 30 and test the Intel® XDK IoT Edition and see where to go from there.
Does anybody have more information on this release? I'm Actually very excited on seeing the capabilities of this IDE integrating with IoT.
XDK IoT version is available by now for Node.JS development. Did you give it a try yet?
For C/C++ development you can use Eclipse IDE from IoT - Getting Started | Intel® Developer Zone.
Not so sure what exactly is your question. Maybe this thread can be marked "answered"?
