I tried _everything_ before Emacs, on junior high I played with Visual
Basic, on the first two years in high school I switched first to
Visual Studio, later on Delphi and C++ Builder. On the third year in
high school I discovered Linux and dropped all of the Windows stuff
and started to write code on simple editors like Gedit, Kate, ecc...
At the end of high school and on the university I looked for some
better environment and tried VIM, KDevelop, Anjuta, Netbeans and
Eclipse. I always found something that really bored me.
Now I just dropped Eclipse and started using Emacs: it looks good,
still I miss some features like "intellisense" and I need to configure
some things like session restoring.
