ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

- SublimeText which is really cool and has a lot of helpful things
- Notepad++, also nice, but the first one is a bit more complete
-Netbeans is helpful but I would not recommend using its GUI designer, a lot of useless code...
-QT creator, for C++ and QT framework, it is an amazing one, I loved it, so simple, not a lot of coding, really powerful and cross plataform.
-Codeblocks, for C++, pretty cool, like Netbeans but a lot lighter.
I think everyone of those except notepad++ are available for linux.
"Pluma is a text editor which supports most standard editor features. It also extends this basic functionality with other features not usually found in simple text editors. Pluma is a graphical application which supports editing multiple text files in one window (known sometimes as tabs or MDI). Pluma fully supports international text through its use of the Unicode UTF-8 encoding in edited files. Its core feature set includes syntax highlighting of source code, auto indentation, and printing support (with print preview). Pluma is a fork of Gedit."
As a former Gedit user, Pluma looks, feels, and works just like Gedit. My old Dell Optiplex workstation has an Intel Graphics chipset which lacks the features and driver support to be able to run the newer desktops, so MATE (GNOME 2 fork) is the solution I settled on. GNOME 2.0 may not have been pretty, but it just worked. I would think that for all programmers except high-end graphics developers, MATE and Pluma are a good choice--particularly if you want to put some old hardware to good use.
