My IDE is to have three GUI windows open:
* A web browser for searching the Internet. Any browser will do, but I
* A tabbed editor. I prefer kate (KDE 3 version, not KDE 4), but geany is
also good. At a pinch gedit will do. kwrite is another good editor, but
not tabbed, and it lacks some of the features of kate.
* An xterm or console app, again with tabs. I like KDE 3's konsole, but
any modern, configurable, tabbed console will do.
Interesting. I'm entirely the other way; while I'm perfectly happy to use
a tabbed browser, I find tabbed editors and tabbed consoles awful to use.
I want to have three different sections of code side by side on the screen
for comparison. I want to have half a dozen consoles all running
different things, all positioned so I can take in the state of those
things at a glance. I do not want to be wasting time flicking between
this and that, and relying on my relatively poor memory to cache all that
Then again, I'm not as bad as one former colleague of mine. He reckons
that the main advantage of higher resolution screens is that he can tile
more 80x40 console windows on them.
