    KDevelop in gnome

    now that I've settled on gnome as a favorite windowed environment I need a good IDE. Will KDevelop work in gnome? is there another one you would suggest instead?

    KDevelop will work in GNOME as long as you have the neccesary dependencies. There is also anjuta, which is worth checking out at least, especially if you want to run GNOME. Anjuta uses the gnome stuff, so KDE dependencies aren't a problem.

    why do you need an IDE?

    I always found Emacs and Vi sufficient for all programming needs.

    IDE's provide lots of ways to navigate your code much easier. Sure, you could go so far as to use a simple text editor and command line compile but why stay back in the stone age? If a jackhammer is available, you shouldn't use a rock instead just cause the rock would do the job.

    Silentstrike, Anjuta looks like it might be real nice. Thanks, I'll give it a try.

    IDE's are totally unecesary, a confortable text editor and gcc is all you need (although anjuta is quite nice).

    ahhh but what if emacs had more features, and a "build" button for your project which was conveniently shown on one side of the editor. hmmmm... wouldn't that be nice? it's an IDE. Nothing but a text editor with features gearing it toward a development project.

    Seriously, the linux world needs to get over stubborn reliance on command line and simple editors if they want to really invade the home computer market. That attitude is the one thing preventing it from blowing away microsoft. IMHO
