anything better than eclipse ide for c/c++?

i'm looking for an ide to program in c/c++. eclipse has a plugin for that, but even though i have not tried out how good it is, one thing for sure is eclipse is still slow because it's java. what does every one around here use? any suggestions for a good c/c++ ide?

Take a look at anjuta. It's nice, but I haven't used it enough to give an accurate review...

Well, since you don't mention that it needs to be Free software,..

I've used SlickEdit in the past, and although it's not an IDE per se, it's got many nice features that will spoil you rotten. :)

Of course, an IDE that many folks around here will recommend is vim/make/ctags/gdb/... :)

You're sure Eclipse is slow even though you haven't tried it? (or did I misunderstand you?) If you have a reasonably fast system the speed is usually pretty good. It's not like an IDE needs to be blazingly fast, since all the heavy work is being done by the compiler anyway.

i have used eclipse on java projects. a few of you mentioned vi and gdb. while i can agree with vi, it was a pain for me the one time i used gdb to debug a Lisp interpreter project: constantly having to type 30+ characters to see the values of variables in a struct->union->struct... in a linked list while i could have clicked clicked clicked.
