When working with Java or C++ I like and IDE like KDevelop because it
makes makefiles for me. And when debugging it is easier to insert
break points graphically than use gdb from the terminal.

But apart from that, I prefer a tiny editor like Kate (yes I know,
call me a heretic for not using emacs).
