:) Emacs does.

vim can handle all this too (although I use emacs myself ;).

:) Only to mention it: of course, Emacs can handle all this, too.  It can

:) avr-gdb and avrsim.

Emacs and gdb/sim work pretty good if you know gdb's commands. Newbies
might find it a bit overwelming. I use ddd with avr-gdb and either
simulavr or avarice as avr backends. To get ddd to use avr-gdb, use

  $ ddd --debugger avr-gdb

One thing I really love about ddd is the graphical display of variables.
I get a nice warm fuzzy feeling when I actually see a linked list all
chained up on the display in front of me. ;-) Ddd also displays the gdb
commands it issues when you click on the buttons (step, break, etc.) so it
give newbies a quick start view of gdb.

I don't know if ddd works on windows though since it uses the Motif
gui toolkit, it runs on everything unix I believe.
