I'm tinkering around with Qt4 now, and may need to use KDevelop. The GUI design part for Qt4 is fine and intuitive, but that's only the GUI. I tried eclipse a little to see if I could convert a conventionally made project (some c code, yacc and lex, and a Makefile; planning to add C++ code and GUIs) but got lost many times and spend hours searching for explanations. I suppose the same is going to happen with KDevelop. The initial steps to put together a proper design of a development project seems to be always the biggest obstacle, at least for a novice to IDE's as myself. It seems always unclear where all the magic of the IDE and GUI maker machines ends and you finally have to think C or C++.

Eclipse. No doubt for Java development. I've heard a lot of really good things about IntelliJ though.

Best IDE?

Kate (or emacs, or vi, or [your choice of editor here]) and bash (or sh, or korn, or [your choice of shell here]).

As I'm mostly into Perl programming I don't need much of an IDE. I do most of my editing with Vim, sometimes with jEdit or gedit. When I feel adventurous enough to try myself on a C or C++ project I use Anjuta. I think that preference stems mostly from the fact that I've known this IDE for quite some time and hence feel comfortable with it as I know my way around.

I still use xwpe or else kate but then I never progressed past turbo-c on w-3.11 before linux and all I ever do is quick and dirty hacks for the heck of it or because I'm too lazy to do something a hack can do. I've always wanted just a plain old ide with out all the bells and whistles. Bells and whistles seem to be the way of the future for Linux aps.

Bells and Whistles Amen.
As I have said above I use "kwrite" as it is the simplest and easiest one to use.

The problem with complexity is that "user"s don't do the programming and programmers can't leave well enough alone.

I hope I can find a forum for "users" that write programs for their own use. Linux is made for this sort of thing.

Many good choices - much to do with user preferences.

You've got it! The vote is exactly about that. Oh, also about Vim being not included at all...
