I installed Anjuta and created a test project that was a standard static library (console based). When Anjuta finished creating the project there were 31 files! 31? What the hell for? I only want to create an empty project so I can import a bunch of files for myself.
Sorry, rant over!
Is there anything out there that is free and more like Visual Studio where it only creates a handful (or less) files for an empty new project?
if you want a single makefile, make it... having all the standard files means that in theory once you write your code you just tar it all up and there's a finished, fully GPL'd product ready to release
You can always write non-GPL software but you have to find it reasonable that a GPLed IDE is probably going to create GPL focused software. Just because you have all those extra files doesn't mean you are licensing your stuff out via the GPL, that is ultimately your decision. Becareful writting commercial code with the free IDE's btw. Many of those IDE's require you to pay for them if you are writting code you plan to make money off of yourself, which is only fair.
