Thing about these IDEs is that they are bloated. They have menus and options out the whazoo. For a beginner, it is just too much.

You know, just because they're there doesn't mean you have to use them.  For example, then English language has about 32000 words, is that a reason for no one to learn to speak it, even though most people will never use them all or even know what phthisic, cromulent, or apoptosis means?

 

Grab a common IDE like Eclipse or QtCreator.  Use the basics (edit, compile, run).  When you find you need more advanced options, there they are, waiting for you like the girl (or MOTAS, we don't judge) you left behind when you shipped off to the war.  Put on those big-boy pants.
