Happy Birthday Microsoft, here's to the next 191,825,000,000 crashes!"

Submission + - Atlantis Launched Successfully

nachmore writes: "
NASA is reporting that Atlantis is "in good shape" after it's successful launch today. ABC News reports that the launch was a "majestic" one, which is appropriate considering that this really was it's last chance at launch. You will all recall that the ship suffered several delays on it's launch towards a construction mission at the ISS.
Good luck boys (and girl)!

Programming

Submission + - What is the Ulitmate Linux Dev Environment?

nachmore writes: "I've been programming on linux for a while now, always content to use vi for my editing and any debugger tools out there (gdb for C, C++ etc.). As part of my SoC project I was working on Thunderbird which was my first huge project on linux and I found that although shell-based tools can do the job, they lack in easy project managment, ease of debugging etc. I've only ever programmed with a GUI on Windows — and I have to admit that I find Dev Studio to be one of the few programs that Microsoft seems to have gotten (nearly) right. I've played around with eclipse but find it's C/C++ support still lacking.

So what GUIs would you recommend for linux? I would like something with debugging (step through etc.) support, CVS access and of course, support for large projects (e.g. Mozilla) and especially good support for C/C++. Is there anything really good out there, or is vi the way to go?"
