    Honestly though, my opinion is that anjuta isn't as good as KDevelop. I've been on vim for all *nix development but I wouldn't be oposed to using KDevelop. I don't see why you shouldn't use it. Even though you are on gnome there really isn't that much of a style difference that makes it look terrible. I use lots of gnome apps in KDE. Oh well. Sorry anjuta didn't work for you.

    I'm not sure if KDev supports GTK2 projects. Also, I'm quite pedantic when it comes to visuals. I really hope one day there will be a standard themeengine for the different toolkits.... or even better.. KDE converts to GTK
    Oh well, one can have dreams...

    KDE converts to GTK
    Thats pure ..........ing evil.

    Kind of funny recently i decided to give Anjunta/GNOME another try.

    First GNOME had some problems with som incredible complex tasks like that were mastered in the 80s: making shortcuts(creating shortcuts to Open Office to the desktop gave me a error message every time), starting a browser (GNOME went insane everytime i started up Mozilla with the modern theme, had to kill Xfree) and general stability(kde has its own boot up time(few secs for me) and thats about it).

    While i dont use it alot, i like Kdevelops documentation broswer thing. Im not sure but with GNOME i think its a seperate app. But, im not sure how well KDevelop does with RPMS but i know Anjunta has a tool for it.

    Im just a QT fan. It looks nice, fairly fast(i hate the kde is so slow arguement) and the apps are intergrated more. Has a company around so it wont just die but its still free(non comercial). Its just more modern.

    In KDE everything has the same feel, GNOME is now trying to get that. But of course, some of KDE themes look like Crayola colors...

    The whole GNOME backing is annoying. How many companies back GNOME? People? Money? For how long? KDE is still in the lead, just missing a few killer apps(Konq is nice but id rather have mozilla. Id kill for a decent UNIX cadd app...).



    IDE are nice, the can give you alot withough switching threw so many virtual consoles. A nice highlihted editor, konsole, error messages, build log and documentation in the same window. If you one of the elitest who thing graphics and text are too n00bishg and every one should do binary, meh, you can always hide the extras if you dont like it.

    Both creat alot of junk with projects. Autoconf i have to look into. Isnt m4 like dead? We are still using it? To get good at autoconf do you have to know it?

    Plus, QT designer is nice

    <edit>
    o yeah, for all the vim people.

    Try something like Kate. Its small like vim but you also have a console at the bottom. I used to use vim alot but i always hated going into command mode for the ! to run something along with it being lost when i go back to insert mode.

    mart, I didn't complain about KDE. I also know about the issues you mentioned that Gnome has. As for the speed - both are pretty slow compared to a windows xp system - even with prelink, applications start slower than on windows. I didn't notice any difference in speed between Gnome and KDE other than maybe that Gnome starts a bit faster.

    I made my decision based on the toolkit's license, the availability of native applications for that desktop or at least for the desktops toolkit and the fact that gnomes sound daemon doesn't keep the sound device busy (under KDE I had to turn off arts every time I wanted to play non KDE games even though my soundcard does hw mixing).
    I didn't find a proper browser for KDE that uses QT natively. Konqueror has still issues with some of the sites I regurarly visit. KOffice's text program made a pretty poor impression when compared to Abiword. Soon OpenOffice will also be available for GTK+.
    As for the license, I don't see any future for QT. It's opensource but comercial users have to pay for it. This will encourage companies to use GTK/GTKmm.

    Anyway, this is all offtopic.

    yeah, i know alittle off topic but its not a flame fest so id rather take advantage...

    As for the speed - both are pretty slow compared to a windows xp system - even with prelink,
    Yeah, but there both getting better. Not really a big problem anymore. It just seems like 2 bootups. Id love to get parellel bootscripts going, i need to find a decent howto...

    Konqueror has still issues with some of the sites I regurarly visit.
    Havnt had any problem myself but im not thrilled about it either. Apple used KHTML and actualy submited new code, so it might shape up for you.

    KOffice's text program made a pretty poor impression when compared to Abiword.
    Koffice has come along way. There a couple style programs for me but so far it workyts pretty good. I cant seem to stumb it, yet.

    OO is great but its kind of big and clunky...

    As for the license, I don't see any future for QT.
    Business still use Redhat Workstation and Advanced Server and there not free. Why not toolkits? Its a pretty nice one...

    I wish i could get KDevolp to work on XP, ive gotten used to it instead of Dev C++ when im at school...

    Yep, I have grown accustomed to KDevelop as well. I prefer it to Dev and VC++. Does anyone know if the aforementioned Window's IDE's have configurable syntax highlighting?
