Well, no, i can't recommend an IDE better than vim (GVim, actually)
and unix. Every time i've tried something else, i've wound up
crawling back to vim.
VisualSlickEdit is about the closest (lots of features, very nice
class browser, vi keybinding emulation), but it costs much money, and
therefore i haven't used it in several years.
I liked NEdit (http://nedit.org) for a long time, but once i got past
the vim learning curve, it and most other CUA-style editors just
seemed comically under-powered.
Anjuta, KDevelop, and their ilk all seem to be attempting to clone
MS's VisualStudio, which i find annoying. VisualStudio's best
feature (only good feature?) is its debugger, which is (or at least
was) not even in the same class as any gdb front-end i've ever used.
I've not tried MonoDevelop, mainly because i don't do stuff with Mono
and the screenshots have the VisualStudio look and feel, with just
My desktop here at the house has a two-button mouse, and the middle-
click emulation is b0rken for some reason; when i have to copy and
paste to and from an editor, i wind up using GEdit.
