i program in php which is structurally similar to c (granted they are 2 completely different languages and thus there are significant differences) but i use kwrite or gedit
i used to use emacs for c++ when i was in programming courses because it has the ability to invoke a compiler without first exiting to a shell

It's part of my Big Three Non-Essential Programs I Can't Live Without. Oxymoronic, but you need those GNU command-line tools...

- Gedit
- Konsole (best tabbing UI, customized easily in the GUI, MANY features)
- Google Chrome (Amazing. I could write a whole documentary about it's amazingness, but I'll spare y'all )
Now, i want to share some of my newbie`s thoughs with you. After years of using Microsoft`s Visual Studio, I`m afaid that I have became a slave of it. I can do nothing without first creating a WIN32 or MFC project.
Then Linux came to give me freedom. And I should known it more and be a friend of it.

It will depend why do you use Visual Studio. Is it for web development? Then Eclipse and Netbeans are almost there. And if you can buy VS, then you can look for Zend Studio as well.
If you use VS for windows applications, then you are bound to it.
But for other languages like c or c++, Code Blocks is a fine editor.
