I'm not. I write my code in Kate and compile it with the Flex SDK compiler.
Ubuntu 11+ uses Unity, not KDE. I, for one, am happy with the new environment. The biggest challenge for it was removing all the bugs, and they seem to have done that since its first release.
Before Unity, though, I actually preferred Gnome over KDE. Just felt better.
anyway, the point is: i've never used Kate before. How is it for general-purpose developing?
I'm not really into proper IDE's. But if I were to want to use FD I'd run it in a VM, I hate Wine. I used to have a stripped down version of XP that I made with N-lite that ran very well on a VM.
I love proper IDEs. They do so much for you that a text editor with a compiler won't. I'm pretty sure Kate won't import everything for you (one of FD's best features, in my opinion. Saves a hell of a lot of time, collectively)
also, what do you mean by "stripped down" and how in the world did you accomplish that?
If I remember right, there is an effort to port FD to work natively on Linux.
yeah, so far they've been able to get it to work unstably in wine. Can you guess what i'm using?
I assume they're trying to get it to work with wine, and then port that to native. I haven't seen evidence to the contrary, at any rate.
speaking of which: what the crap is "native" for a debian-based system? (I assume all the major distros are different, judging by the individual packages and ways of getting them) I would say bash, but i'm pretty sure you can't create fully-featured C-like applications with it. My next guess would have been Python, except that sure as hell wasn't developed specifically for linux.
