Good IDE in linux, where are they??


M$ 've created a good IDE (VS .Net) to persuade
programmer to write program for their OS.

What do we have to against them.
Do you use any good IDE? Give me a list.
*Note*
In my opinion, a good IDE must have these
features at least:

+ Automatic word (variable name, function name etc.)
completed
+ Edit code (Include design GUI), compile, debug, make
the software ready to be installed on another PC, within
one program.
+ Support at least two language (C and Perl etc.)
+ Detail document and sample on the web or disc.

There are actually quite a few to choose from, and a lot depends on your own likes and dislikes. You can get a good start of which IDEs to evaluate from the Linux Table of Equivalents:

Have a lot of fun!

Did you try KDE? Have a look at KDE apps. You can configure them the way that NO ONE win app allows you. E.g.: shortcuts. It's one of the reasons why I prefer KDE. E.g., I like to save a file pressing F2 It's much more convinient than <Ctrl+S>... for me. Especially, my favourite KDE app is KWrite. Much more convinient than Notepad or Wordpad. And... Opera, of course. I've never seen a better web-browser. It loads htmls not as others... even firefox. I think IE6 is much more convinient than Firefox though... Just cuz it's an avarage browser, like mozilla, netscape... Ok, I shut up.
But Fluxbox has very convinient main menu... and eats very few resources, but can do much MORE than, e.g., also eating little win98...

Why is everybody so caught up with IDEs anyways? To me they're mostly hype. You can do all of what you mentioned with the exception of drag-and-drop gui design with an editor like VIM, which totally rocks; and the more you learn about VIM, the more it rocks. I must admit there's a learning curve to VIM though, as is the case with anything worth learning
Just cause I'm curious: are there any IDEs that actually let the programmer move about the text being edited with the same ease as in VIM? or do they pretty much limit you to moving around with the cursor keys and a character at a time?

Debugging in an IDE's GUI is pretty nice...

KDE is not good enough!

Honestly, VS.Net is much better than KDE.

KDE neither supports auto word complete,
nor object browse. It supports more languages
than needed, but it don't include documentation
for those language

I agree with nazdrowie. The IDEs are mere hype. But when it comes to editors, I prefer emacs.

I write the code, compile it and even debug from within the emacs, without even coming to the shell. ;-)

I think that was a Joke :P

TruongAn, you can find good IDEs for Linux like Borland Kylix's one. Actually that's a matter of taste, I found Java NetBeans to be a wonderfull IDE for Java. I really enjoy using jEdit too for PHP, HTML and Java stuff. The problem actually is that there are so many that you take a lot to find one for your taste, while, in Windows, you have only ONE, so there's no choice, just keep in the production chain and you'll be a monkey coder (I don't pretend to offense anyone, it's the reality :P).

By the way, if you really like Visual Basic, try Gambas found in: http://gambas.sourceforge.net it's a language like VB that has a good IDE.

I've never seen VS.Net, but I'm pretty sure it's worser than KDE. I just see how awful XP Style is even comparing with KDE3.2... Also I'm sure 4.0 will be much better than Windows 2010
And it supports my Russian just fine (GNOME does even better). And I didn't need to read documentation: both KDE & GNOME have their Contol Centers where all is as easy as a mouse click.
And "auto word complete"... shell suppots this (it completes paths and cmds). Or may be you're about MS Office? I think (but never used) StarOffice is similar.
Every Linux thing is better than LoseDOS' one: either shell, or IDE.

Borland Kylix might be the better IDE for linux
supports pascal and C++
Generally works,functions and performs the same as IDEs in MS windows though there are some differences in the availablelity of visual or non-visual components between the free and comercial editions of Kylix.
The download size of the Open Kylix (the free edition one) is around 90mb and you might need a fast PC( ?at least a P4,526mb ram?)if you want fast IDE performance.
