Right, of course the code quality is ok. The case is that I always search for better maintenance tools and looking to the future, in the "Project Management" KDev4 "Can't open KDevelop 3.x project files (any build tool supported in the 3.x versions)". In the "qmake Manager" no KDev4 compatibility. Even with all the for and against, I'll test/change to KDevelop4. Because I don't like the idea of downgrading. Do you agree?
Thanks for your opinion.

KDevelop does doesn't sound like a good maintenance tool for the following reasons:
  1. It can't operate on anything but its own projects. It can't maintain anything not created in it.
  2. It can't operate on anything but projects of the same version. Backwards compatibility was a lost cause in its previous version breaks, too.
  3. Changes in automake have pulled KDevelop apart several times.

It's realy a shame. Are these friends from Kdevelop realy serious? Or the enemy is under control? It seems they are kidding. It could be so beaultiful. why loose all this works that was done? Why we don't understand each other stopping with so many linux flavors? We should not be so dumb and follow the exemple of Europe with the euro. We could have the "Euro-Linux" called "PeaceMaker" or "UNIXfier". This way, it goes easy for M$, and the money is winning, and the SW lovers(open SW) are loosing. The best way to do the best is loving the job/work that you do. SW also has a beauty, and we can be happy with it.
What good(Linux) maintenance (IDE)tool you suggest?

I reccomend make, the GNU Data Dump Debugger, and whatever editor you want.

The reason no GUI IDE has succeeded at bringing the world together in an all-singing-all-dancing-platform-independent-joy despite the droves of them in existence is that they're the wrong solution for the problem of general maintenance. An IDE by nature isn't flexible enough for general maintenance, they by design impose huge restrictions on their environment. That, and most of them depend on autotools, which have their own problems.

I will try GNU Data Dump Debugger. I liked the idea, and it seems to be my style.

May I ask another, a more complicated tecnical question about Linux subject, or I should open an other Thread?
