KDevelop is an integrated development environment which makes the creation and development of applications an easy task even for beginners. Highlights of the current release are: an application wizard for easy creation of KDE 4, Qt4, GNOME, and terminal C/C++ projects, full project management, a syntax-highlighting editor, code completion, an integrated dialog editor for the Qt/KDE GUI libraries, an internal debugger, a full-featured class browser with class tools, CVS and SVN support, an integrated HTML-based help system offering manuals and class-references, and extensive search mechanisms to browse sources and documentation.

            The best IDE! I love the new syntax cheking and code navigation in KDevelop 4. Can't wait for the Java support.

            By far the best
            KDevelop is by far the best Development IDE for Linux I have used. It's look and feel is quite similar to that of MS Visual C++. The key bindings are a bit different and difficult to get used to if all you have used in the past is MS VC++, but it is well worth the try.

            KDevelop takes most of the work out of writing Makefiles (if not all of the work), configuration files and the likes.

            KDevelop gets my vote!!!
