I don't like IDEs per se, but I do like a savvy editor. There are a lot 
of quirks and problems with it, but when I want an editor that can move 
around and understand C++, I'll sometimes use source navigator (it's 
available somewhere on sourceforge.net).

The editor I use the most is vi. The editors I use for something more 
complicated might be nedit or kate. I'd like kate a whole lot more if it 
just had real project bookmark abilities (there was an attempt at some 
sort of project plugin, but it doesn't seem to work very well, or not at 

KDevelop is dedicated more to developing specifically KDE apps under Qt. 
Eclipse seems to also be oriented towards specialty environments. What 
I'd really like is a modern upgrade of source navigator.
