I am aware of a few IDE's for c++ in linux, i am looking for an IDE that resembles borlands IDE, or something close. basically the easiest IDE to use. at the moment i have looked at eclipse - looks good. i`m also looking into greating a game that uses Opengl or something similar. am i able to write protable code with Opengl? thanks Anthony

To answer your second answer simply: yes. The long answer is you need to make sure your input and window management is crossplatform as well. I suggest using SDL for input and window management, and use OpenGL for rendering graphics.

As for your first question, the only IDE I can think of is Eclipse. I'm pretty sure it can run on Linux and works with C++. Personally, I would use CMake to automatically build a make file and just use VIM or some other text editor to write code. Although, those lack the syntax recognizance....the term for it has left my brain.

Linux has specific IDE programs, such as emacs or vim, which are usually as powerful (if not more) as a good IDE on Windows, but they take some time to get used to (for starters, you're generally not meant to use your mouse at all).

Linux also has some click-based IDE programs, for instance Eclipse, KDevelop or Kate (on KDE).

Give Code::Blocks a try - www.codeblocks.org. I've used it on Windows and LINUX, and I've developed applications that compile/run on each using Code::Blocks. For my purposes it behaves as well as Visual Studio.

Whats wrong with netbeans? I love netbeans. (Seriously if its flawed let me know)

I have it installed on my eeePC incase I have to program something while traveling. Ive used it several times for several small programs and I thought it was really good.
