and to the original issue: just because it doesn't have Eclipse, why
should that cause everyone to avoid doing development on it?  AFAI am
concerned, a Unix(-like) system with multiple terminal windows, one
for editing, one for compiling, one for testing/debugging is the best
IDE there is. (I realize lots of people disagree.) Until someone gives
me something easy to use that incoroporates a full clone of vi as its
primary editing tool, I'll stick with the plain and simple.
