IDEs for non-programmers???

If you're not a programmer, leave apps development to the pros. IOW, learn to become a programmer. Start slow. And in this case, an IDE is overkill.

Real Programmers don't need no steenking IDE. But if you're gonna force me to choose one from the list, it'd have to be Eclipse. It's probably the least obtrusive of all the choices on how I choose to write, test, and package code.

Sorry for the rant ... but this entire proposition is preposterous.

Can't see jEdit. Ive used KDev, Anjuta, MS Studio, textpad, notepad++ and many others and they either lack important funcionality, like for example notepad++, or simply drive me crazy (Anjuta, KDev, MS studio). jEdit has the stuff I need and doesn't annoy me.

I'll have to say Eclipse. I use it primarily for Java, but used it before with c++ and python. However, today I gave another chance to netbeans 5 and I'm quite impressed. Since I do all my coding in Java, I found it very attractive. Maybe next year I will vote for Netbeans

I have been using Eclipse a lot. I have used Netbeans too, but it is not as intuitive as Eclipse.

M$ shot themselves in the foot by trying to kill Java a long while ago, for that is what got me looking into the idea of finding another O/S. Hence, I am here now, and glad that they did what they did, other wise I would still be ignorant of this wonderful O/S called Debian Etch.

Got quite a few of my friends, and even a brother-in-law to give Linux a whirl. They are glad that I took the plunge and now are using Linux more often than not.

Well, there I go, acting like an old broken down truck driver, rambling along as I go, but then again, that is exactly what I am. LOL

When I read peoples comments I found this kinda funny. VI is NOT an IDE. It's a text editor that can be EXTENDED, TRANSFORMED into an IDE, just like emacs. I can make my old Fiat Uno into a racing car if I modify everything, but it's NOT a racing car. It's just a crap little piece of junk metal.

It reminds me of torrent sites, where everybody keep posting "seed, seed, seed", "ples seed". I expected more from a community of programmers then peoples downloading Windows hacked programs or p0rn in torrents forums... but...

I use Perl for most of my coding anymore, but when I was using C++ I preferred KDevelop, so that got my vote. Don't care for IDEs too much anymore, I just use Kate on Linux and Notepad++ on Windows.
