Hi,
I have been using Linux for several years and I have tried to learn programming as a hobby several times. I have tried a lot of languages but need to have something thats easy to learn and use since Im not doing this professionaly.
I have been using the latest Visual Studio 2005 Express Edition and it looks like a winner to me. My problem is that I really would like to use a similar IDE that is easy to use but works with Linux. As of now Im stuck in the windows world and would like some advice about how to get back to Linux. I really need something simple!
No flames please. If I can Ill gladly return to Linux. Please advice.


Regards

Jesper

Eclipse is great for Java, C/C++ and it have plugins for python (probably more languages aswell).
I've never seens Visual Studio, so i can't say if they're some what alike.

Assuming you are using Visual Studio .NET to do C# programming, you can do C# programming with Eclipse also. In windows all you need is eclipse of course, the free C# command line compiler and a C# plugin for eclipse.

In Linux I think there's monodevelop but I have never seen it.

Monodevelop is (at least in its Ubuntu version) extremely buggy and not ready for ordinary use. I do have my hopes up for it, though!

You can download gtk# libraries and runtime for VS here (http://forge.novell.com/modules/xfmod/project/?gtks-inst4win), to create cross platform programs.

I would advise you to stay with Windows for C# development or try eclipse. MonoDevelop is not much of a help at the moment.

May I suggest KDevelop (http://www.kdevelop.org/)?

For windows, i'd advise SharpDevelop (http://www.icsharpcode.net/opensource/sd/) for C# as a free platform (and so similar to VS .Net 2003 )

For linux, i think Mono is not "ready" yet.
If you are interested in Java programming (it's similar to C#) try Eclipse + Visual Editor plug - in. With these you can easily design GUI's and code. As mentioned above, Eclipse has plug-ins for many other languages. For Java, NetBeans is another good choice.

mono IS ready and fully working, it supports the whole 1.2 .NET spec and it's about to fully support C# 2.0. what's NOT perfectly working yet is MonoDevelop, as stated, but anyway... emacs + [if you like] glade + other stuff should do the trick :)

eclipse is fine but it's bloody heavy and still not the right choice for C# programming, anyway should be a good idea for everything else ~ although i don't like IDE's

yeah, i meant MonoDevelop :) ... and yeah, as it's coded in Java, Eclipse is really heavy, but a good IDE...
