There are vast numbers of editors for Linux.  Emacs is popular with those
that like emacs (I don't think there is a better way to describe it,
really).  There are those who swear by Vim, and there huge numbers of other
editors.  For many, something like kate (the KDE advanced editor) are
perfectly good.  I often use jedit - it's a bit demanding on the processor
and memory (far more than an editor should be), but works well, has enough
project management facilities for me, and if I run "make" from within it, I
can click on error messages and jump right to the relevant line.  It also
runs happily on windows and linux.

Learn to use "make" and compile from the command line (even if it is from
within an editor).  If you learn an IDE, then the next time you get a new
compiler, you need to learn a new IDE.  If you get familiar with a
reasonable editor, and learn to use make, then you can use it for all your

Or try gvd.  There are a number of different debuggers that can use external
gdb's as the backend - gvd, ddd, kdbg, emacs, etc.
