    C++ in Windows or Linux?

    Ok,

    You guys probably all ready hate microsoft windows for programming in.
    Is it easier to program in Linux or Windows when making the program in the OS's graphical interface?

    Thanks.......

    That all depends on the API that you chose. Personaly I have no preference to programming for windows or linux. I usualy cose to code underlinux because I like the way it handels things.
    For programming in linux I use emacs. As it can be a near total IDE, and I like the way it handels text editing. Much easier then playing with vi.

    For windows well I use Visual Studio.

    But again it all depends on what you want to do and who you are trying to attract to your program.

    Lmao.. Lets not start the vi/vim (#define VIM vi ) vs emacs war here.. I do use vim/vi at times.. But I just like some of the features that emacs provies, that I have not found in vi/vim.
    Like choice of shells and editors are totaly personal choices, and also the starts of many flame wars.

    They both are good, just for coding I use emacs.
