Code::Blocks, Eclipse, Qt Designer and others are available for Windows and Linux. Google is an excellent resource, you know.

Why worry about "the switch"? Most Linux distros have very good dual boot caps.

I am going to recommend Code::Blocks. I even wrote a tutorial on installing it via Ubuntu here.

I've new to programing my self, but i use a linux net book for all my programing. I don't see the need for an IDE myself. I open up a terminal session and use vi from there. There is a bit of a learning curve but it's a really powerful text editor that once you learn is great for programing. IF you are having a hard time with vi you can also open up gedit it has less feature but is much easier to use.

All i really want when I program is syntax highlighting and both vi and gedit do a great job at it.

Code::Blocks is good, but if you want a very good multi-language text editor, try SciTE. It's Scintilla based and it has highlighting as well as support for many different languages, including Ruby, HTML, and Python. It's easy to use and creates files in the target language such as ".py" or ".rb".

The OP was looking for C++ Editor on *nix. You want to go with a multi-language one I would recommend Eclipse.

Geany is a nice multi-language editor that has an easy learning curve for beginners. SciTE is ok too though, I like geany because you can compile and execute from the Editor as well.

I use both Linux and Windows and I've found that NetBeans is a good IDE for c++ and I can use it on both platforms. If you use that you can try it on Windows before you make the switch...

Under Linux, I advise you to install and learn all you can about Vim.
Its a command line editor, but it is one of the most full-featured text editors you will ever use.

For a full-featured linux/windows IDE for C++ you should check out Code::Blocks.

Once you wanted for something for VB.NET check out MonoDevelop

I reccomend using code::blocks/GCC on windows and linux because MSVC sucks.

There are absolutely tons of threads like this. :)

Probably the closest to VS in terms of features (that I've used) is Eclipse.

How much does an individual thread weight? How many threads does it take to make a ton?

Interesting... :unsure:

As much as <thread size in bytes>worth of harddrive weights.
