I know this thread is older than dirt, but I thought I'd contribute something with my first post ever on here. Linux Multimedia Studio is a great free music software comparable to Fruity Loops. Don't let the name fool you; it's available for both Linux and Windows.

I think that you can download the free Bloodshed C++ IDE here, its what I use

Likewise, you can just get eclipse for free at eclipse.org or .com or something like that for Java or C++ (the java one is nice, but i don't like the C++ one)

Netbeans isn't on the list. It's very similar to eclipse except I find it's more friendly to Java developers. It has a very nice GUI designer for Java Swing. You can install plug-ins that allow it to recognize C++, Ruby, some other ones too. I thought I'd throw this in here to keep the competition between Netbeans and Eclipse heated. I think it's only because they are such strong rivals that they are both so polished.

The MAIN reason I switched to Netbeans... like Visual Studio you can drag tabs from the code editor into a completely new window! :shock: Very useful for folks with more than one monitor.

Compiler:
Newen.net's precompiled Mingw32 gcc
The simplest way to get the latest gcc version that I've found and it actually updates regularly with the latest version of gcc, for that sweet sweet C++0x support it provides.

IDEs:
NetBeans
Cross platform and cross-language with C++ autocomplete support that rivals that of visual studio and works even with complicated templates (smart pointers and Code::Blocks do not get along) and doesn't throw a hissy-fit if I use C++0x functionality like variadic templates. Also you can use Project Kenai and/or a variety of source control systems (SVN, CVN, Mercurial...) from inside the IDE. Seriously, I like Visual Studio as an IDE but I can't say this one doesn't come close to rivalling it at least for C++. And since it can use compilers other than the MSVC compiler...yeah =)

CodeLite
As if you took Code::Blocks and added Visual Assist's functionality to it. A good IDE for C++.

Visual C++ is kind of cool, although I always disliked it's formatting for some reason. Dev C++ is basically just notepad with basic syntax highlighting and a compiler bolted on the back. Getting indentation to work on Dev C++ is a nightmare, whereas in VC++ it's all automatic :mrgreen:. The only reason I used to use Dev C++ was because it was so easy to integrate with SDL and other libraries, because of the concept of DevPaks, which is an easy way to do addons in Dev C++. In fact, until recently, whenever I wrote a game in SDL I would write all the code in VC++, and then copy and paste into Dev C++ to actually compile it (this was back when I was way too lazy to actually install SDL with Visual Studio ;).)

Wow... when dealing with more than a few files, that must have taken way longer than just setting VC up to use SDL.

Qt is also fantastic tool, which I don't think anyone has mentioned yet in detail. Not only is the UI engine (which is the reason why most people use Qt) fantastic; it is also completely cross-platform, and the IDE itself, Qt creator, is one of the best I've ever used. It's also OpenGL based, which means it's really very quick and simple to create GL based games, without any of the hassle you would normally have with other IDEs to get it set up and building correctly. And, obviously, all input and window handling can be handled directly with Qt's GUI system, and not with some external system or library. I thought it ws pretty cool...

Yeah, I know. That's why I thought it was strange :). Plus Marcel uses it, so it's automatically badass.

Indeed... I don't see why falco is still using that fail of an IDE that is XCode xD jk jk never even used it

I think he still uses Visual Studio on Windows though... but I don't know that for sure...

What about bitbucket? You guys ever used it? What do you think about it?

https://bitbucket.org/

It's free for teams of 5.

Full disclosure: I work for the company that develops bitbucket.

It's a bit like github but I think that costs money for private code repositories.
