    I tend to use Kdevelop, but to be honest I use it simply as a glorified/specialist text editor -- I don't use its project/build management features, but (when I have to) organise those myself with GNU Autotools and similar.

    In fact from my point of view the Kate text editor would probably suffice, and I often make use of vi, but Kdevelop gives me an editing environment that is programming-dedicated.

    I can get away with this approach because my development work is relatively small-scale, and in any case I quite like having micro-control. If you're working on a larger scale you may need advice from someone more experienced than me ...

    (One of these days I will get around to learning how to use Emacs properly -- the editor of the gods, and all that. One day...)

    I write all my code, for C++ and other languages, in Geany. Its simple, clean, and very uncluttered.

    How's its automated indentation? Kate/Kdevelop seems to have some problems with mixed tab/space indentation ...

    Hmm. On a brief test ... not good. It claims to do 'mixed tabs and spaces' but that just means it uses 'tabs for most of the indentation, spaces for the rest' as opposed to, 'tabs for indentation, spaces for alignment'.

    In a very loosely related question, and my first post on this forum, [grin, Hi!] I was using Bloodshed on Windows, which I understand is a windows port of a linux IDE. Anybody know what the parent / source is?

    It uses MinGW, which is a port of gcc, but I don't think the ide is based off of anything from linux.
