They have open source programs to matche Microsoft tools in most places but this seems to be the exception
Soooo if you want to make a name for yourself in the annals of Linuxdom, then you might set yourself a task to create a C/C++ compiler equicalent of Quick C or TurboC. That would be a good thing for those of us that are newbies. :-)
That is pretty much how most of the linux c/c++ programmers do things. At least the ones I know. I use vim with syntax on which can be turned on by uncommenting the line from vimrc. But I am currently looking into eclipse as it looks to be pretty good and I have heard good things about it.
There is a similar .net in linux. This is the mono project. You can find it here. http://mono-project.com/Main_Page
Don't you mean to create yourself an IDE as gcc and cc are really good compliers
