IDEA + plugins vs. Specialised Products

Hi there,

What's the difference between IDEA + appropriate plugin (i.e. PHP) vs PHPStorm. Same goes for RubyMine and PyCharm. Do I miss any functionality?
I dabble with Python/Ruby and PHP and would like to get IDEA + plugins for the whole deal, would I loose anything if I go that route?

Hello Grzegorz,

All functionality can be provided via corresponding plugins. Some workflow or UI may be different between IntelliJ IDEA and lightweight IDEs. Please check this answer for details.
