    Programming in Linux


    Hey everyone,
    For a few years now I've been doing a fair bit of programming, mostly in windows, an I've used Visual Studio to get the job done. Now that I'm using linux I'm wondering if there is something a little more sofisticated than emacs I can use to code (This is all C++ of course)

    I mean, emacs is great and all, but it just doesn't have the features that visual studio did to make it a little bit easier to find your way around all the mess, especially when you have lots of different header files you gotta keep track off.

    So.. any suggestions?

    One of the Top C++ programming framework (dual platform) is QT IMO you can find it here

    its like 50$... compared to 800$ for VC++ w/MSDN

    If you think about doing lots of cros platform applications and tools, I really recommand JAVA... great and a hell lot faster then a few years ago :P
    Eclipse is a fantastic dev environment tool and can be found here

    Project management is easier to do in an IDE, I agree. I use Eclipse for Java, but there is a C++ plugin for it. KDE has the KDevelop IDE available, and I've used it before too; it's similar in most respects to Visual Studio.

    You could also give Anjuta a shot. I just started using it recently, no complaints thus far.
