CD-Burning and Instant Messanging categories would have been indeed interesting this year.

But Eclipse can do anything. The plugins architecture is also very good. Eclipse is rather rapdly becoming an inustry standard. Plus its totally cross platform too.

So? Does not it fully support automake and am_edit? What
about support for qmake? Does it allow browsing kdelibs,
qt, libc documentation with full text search capabilities?
What about signal/slot support in the class browser?
Man pages? Integration of any KPart? ioslaves? Integration
of external programs? Konsole? Perforce support? Kompare
support? Doxygen support? Regular expression tester?

Just to name a few things ;-)

We are actually getting to a situation where you can use any number of IDEs. Choose what you think is best!

By David at Mon, 2003/11/17 - 6:00am

I voted for KDE, OpenOffice, Konqueror, Fluxbox, Scalc, SWriter, Kmail, VIM and Mplayer.

Wow, thanks for that.

KDE has lots of great technologies, kspread is not yet one of them. It is not complete enough to come anywhere near being usable for nontrivial operations. There are reasons to chose ooo or gnumeric, but selecting kspread now is just silly. Load up some of the regression tests from the gnumeric team and watch it get NONE of it correct, not just some, but a full fledged zero for some files.

Have any of you actually used it or are we just a bunch of fanboys ?
