Heck, most of my apps don't require a GUI anyways, they're mostly for research/quick scripts/personal use to perform a task. *shrugs*

Have you ever tried Eclipse? As much as I like Netbeans, Eclipse is like 100 times less demanding, faster then Eclipse any day...

Actually, I was just discussing programming with a friend, who also uses Linux, we need to get the ultimate IDE listed for the survey.

LINUX the ultimate IDE.

I vote for Eclipse. Best IDE ever. It's supported by many very big company like IBM, HP, Oracle, Zend, Nokia ... Not only java, Eclipse is also the good IDEs for PHP, HTML, javascript, C#, UML, aspectJ, OpenGL, ... If anyone hasn't tried it yet, try it once to see its true power.

My choice of an IDE often is dictated by the type of hardware I am using. If I need to use a machine that has only 1-GHz speed capability, and maybe it doesn't have a lot of memory, then Eclipse is not a very tenable solution. Maybe it's better in such a case to use Anjuta, or another environment that is a little lighter.

As far as the use of console "IDE" environments, those are for others who have better memories than I. A GUI oriented IDE makes better use of visual space, such that you can see more of the information at one time. I can glance at things that are already visible on-screen, make changes more quickly, and am more productive as a result. It's not just a matter of pretty pictures versus "real, tough-man" programming, as some Emacs addicts would suggest.

My opinion is that Eclipse is about par with Sun's "Sun Studio" for C++ programming. I think maybe it's better suited for Java. I haven't tried Kdevelop since the early days when it crashed constantly. Maybe it's better now. And Visual Studio has become such a bloated nightmare that now it seems to be more like a video game or something ....

Borland rocks but more people think it's a bad place to vacation than a state-of-the-art IDE: they need to work on their PR machine. I prefer Borland C++ Builder when I'm doing Windows.

- Each to his own.
