Talking Why not integrade vim to a IDE ?

I have a suggestion:
Why not make a IDE like eclipse/devv-cpp/vs studio by integrading vim?
Built something like project-management, etc. I think it will not be a lot works to do, maybe some hacking and coding. At least much more less than building a whole new one from nothing, since vim is very mature and provide a lot of features, also it is very protable.

Or some body has already did sth like that? Tell me !!

Cuz then we'd have to change its name to EMACS.

I would guess that the reason is IDEs are supposed to be easy for beginners to use, and Vim doesn't fit that description. Still, it is the lack of a decent editor that puts me off using most IDEs, so I would certainly be interested in one that used Vim.

I wouldn't really call emacs an IDE because it doesn't have an integrated graphical debugger, or anything like that.

most of the ide doesnt give much control to you. you can cutomize emacs how ever you like cause it is a lisp interpreter if you want something you add it. but in ides you dont have that much customization.
