Does anybody still use Metrowerks' stuff?

I don't know about on Windows, but on the Mac Metroworks tools are almost defunct, as the IDE is not as clean, and the compiler is not as standards conforming as the Apple toolchain (XCode, GCC).
I note that Metroworks is deeply discounting some of there products, which may be a sign of imminent plans to end the line.

It's a pity, I have a deep fondness for Metrowerk's Macintosh line of products (they were the first C/C++ toolchain that I ever used).

At school we use CodeWarrior for Java. Although I think it might actually be Satan, not CodeWarrior.

Really though, I find it to be quite average by the standards of free compilers/IDE's, and since it most certainly isn't free, I don't see why anyone would really use it.

EDIT: OK, OK maybe I don't hate it quite that much, but I've just never been away from school computers and said "Gee, I really wish I could use CodeWarrior for this!"

You don't really hear much about metrowerks these days, but back when Apple was switching over from the 68k chips, Codewarrior was blazingly fast and could easily target both the 68k and PPC. It's a shame, I used their pascal compiler for my first "real" programming.
