OK, I imagine that you guys get asked this question a lot, but since I''m new to the Linux world, and seeing that there really isn''t a definite answer in the FAQ, I feel that I''m entitled to ask this question. I''ve narrowed down my C++ IDE choices for my RedHat 8.0 environment to KDevelop and Anjuta (they were the only ones on the front page of the Google search). Which would you recommend? The screenshots of both look pretty nice, and I might end up trying both anyways, but I''d like some opinions. Thanks in advance.

If you plan to write programs for one of the major desktop environmets, you should you the IDE geared more for it. Thats Anjuta for gnome/gtk projects, and Kdevelop for KDE/Qt projects. If I remember correctly, Kdevelop has better gnome support than Anjuta''s KDE support, so if you want one IDE for both, I''d recomend Kdevelop.

Hello,

And for developing with Java (not qt or gtk, "pure" crossplatform java), what do you recommend, Anjuta or KDevelop?

Thanks,

Marc Casas

With Java, I''d try looking at Borland JBuilder 8 Personal. Last time I checked it was free. Sun''s Forte for Java is another free tool. If your looking for a pay tool, upgrade JBuilder 8 Professional or use Codeforge http://www.codeforge.com.

Don''t forget, there''s always vi and the command line too

Well, I''ve tried JBuilder and Forte for Java, and they have the same problem: are slow. I have a low-end computer (Celeron 700), and Visual C++, Anjuta and KDevelop works very fast, but when I load Forte or JBuilder... I''m looking for a lightweight ide, without GUI editor (I don''t need it...), but with CVS support, and if it''s possible, code completion...

I assume we''re still talking about linux, so an IDE that you might be interested in is called AnyJ. Free on linux with limited versions free for other OSes. Might run into the same kinds of problems with resources as Forte but in my experience it''s slightly better on that front. Since you mentioned VC++, on the Windows end there''s JCreator which is significantly faster than any java IDE i''ve seen other than Vim. Check their respective sites to see if they have what you''re looking for, i haven''t used CVS so i''m not sure to what degree they support it.

There's also Eclipse http://www.eclipse.org, although it may still have some of the resource issues stated above, and it has CVS integration.
