    For teh developers around these parts, which IDE do you prefer (for C/C++)?
    I'm playing around with Visual Studio and Eclipse right now.

    i use visual studio. the compatibility with other languages makes it awesome. C++ is old stuff, move on to c# and oracle.

    EDIT: oh wait are you programing embedded systems or computer software?

    Both. I like C++ more because I think I'll get more use out of it. Especially stuff like homebrew.
    Oh, and I'm kind of runny linux right now. And from what I hear, Mono isn't that great.

    yeah C/C++ is a nice basic little language. mono's cool..compatible with a lotta dot net stuff.

    though with embedded systems you'll be using a lot more c.

    i dunno if mono has this but C# on visual studio suggests/completes syntax as you type.

    in the end it's going to depend on what company you're working for cuz each one uses their own standards and whatnot.
