    Try getting into bomb fights, then you would have something in common.

    I wish people that gave a crap about stuff like Windows vs Linux would get into bomb fights.

    Try being accurate. My exact wording was "it's like," your exact wording was "the same." Fine -- I'll call the missus and ask her -- she's Israeli, she'll tell me if I'm being stupid.

    ...

    Nope. She thinks the comparison is funny and appropriate.

    Will mail bombs do? If so, want to exchange addresses?
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein

    Giving a crap about the difference isn't the same as getting worked up about it. At work, my development environment is Linux, and yet the product's main target is Windows (there are many other targets, but Windows is most of the sales base). So I deal with both on a daily basis. I'm not terribly opinionated about it, but I do "give a crap."

    You're right, I misspoke. I wish the people who care enough to get into huge internet flame wars would get into bomb fights

    Ok, well pardon my ignorance of this long-standing conflict over Vim vs. Emacs. To go along with your metaphor, the Israelis vs Palestinians one? Well, My grouping of Emacs and Vim together is like calling BOTH Israelis and Palestinians people of the Middle East. I believe this is very accurate, and that's how I was treating emacs and vim. I don't know, nor care about the big debate over emacs and vim. Emacs got its own category because of my ignorance of the popularity of vim, and because I prefer emacs, so there's a little bias. This isn't supposed to be some contest, like "IF EMACS GETS THE MOST VOTES IT'S BETTER THAN VIM!" It was just a curious poll, so please, lighten up. Put away the mail bombs, and get out the styrofoam hands, and vote.

    EDIT:
    I am aware that Emacs isn't a general category, but are you aware that this isn't a regulated, serious poll?? If you're not, I suggest you read my posts in this topic.
    Btw, I don't see how I was being rude in any way in regards to grouping Emacs and Vim together. I believe I explained myself above.

    So honestly, don't be an .............. about a light-hearted thing, I'll say it once more:
    THIS POLL IS NOT A SERIOUS POLL, IT IS FOR CURIOSITY AND FRIENDLY POSTING OF YOUR FAVORITE EDITOR

    At least be aware of the major differences between the two. Most importantly, vi is a modal editor, while emacs is modeless. This is an ENORMOUS difference from an interface perspective. I'm not trying to be serious here -- I don't partake in the emacs vs. vi flame wars.

    I didn't say you were rude. I said some people might view it as extremely rude. I'm not one of those people. I'm simply pointing out that, among certain people, you might be stoned for such a comment.

    I'm picking up a big rock right now.

    Dev-C++ (IDE) is my favorite C/C++ editor. But for all other languages, Notepad++ is the best.

    Visual Studio on windows, vim on linux.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    I use Visual Studio for everything (php, asp, html, etc and of course c++, c#) now. It just looks clean and easy in the eye and don't bother to have to many code editors.

    I use notepad and all those light text editors for copy-n-paste stuff.

    I'm thinking of doing my final year c++ project in eclipse. I can't get used to Visual C++ Express.

    Kate forever! And, pray tell, why is it grouped with Notepad?

    Sorry, but Kate isn't exactly in league with Notepad, more with an IDE. If you don't believe me, try launching Kate and pressing F7 . . . and then type make. It's basically an IDE, IMO.

    Also, I use vim for makefiles (because I don't use tabs to indent, and I have Kate set up to replace all typed tabs with 4 spaces), and Dev-C++ when I use Windows. Also, I'll use Cygwin for ncurses programming under windows, and I'll use SciTE for general Windows text-editing.

    And while I'm at it, I use Firefox . . .
