QtCreator for the win!
While Dirk and Linus aren't enthusiastic front-end / application developers, they have found Qt to do much better than GTK for their cross-platform program.I donīt really get that, the name QTCreator implies that its at least 99% a specialiest QT-Apps-Only Development Tool. When I go on their side their is nothing that makes me belive the opposite. Its even a part of the toolkit it self.. Dirk also found the Qt Creator IDE to be incredibly good. Dirk even switched from being a long-time emacs user to now using the Qt Creator integrated development environment.
So when Dirk in reallity is not primary a GUI designer how can he switch from the feature-richest Development-plattform and Operating System Emacs to such a gui-only tool.
Of course u can write c and other stuff even in plugin-less gedit, but that makes it not a good IDE.
For me it sounds he never was able to use gtk or emacs productive because he always got angree that what he wanted to do, did not work the way he thought would be the best or something. And now he tries to troll with one post somewhere everything he hates, emacs and gtk.

Pot meet Kettle, Kettle meet pot. Or in other words: And the difference between that an Linus attitude is exactly where/what?Dirk shared the same view as many with dealing with upstream GTK/GNOME developers being tough, frequent abuse and flame-wars, and accusations from the developers that "you're doing it wrong."
Also, QtCreator is easily extendable and redistributable with a specific set of plugins, for instance it is used in the Sailfish OS SDK.
I now only wait for the Python integration to be as good as the C++ one, because IIRC right now it's only doing syntaxic coloration, but there are no refactoring options and no completion, which would be a must-have for PyQt.
Handwritten and generated C++ code are enough if there is good build system with fast rebuild.
New QWidget class couldn't be added because you can't have two QWidget classes in same namespace. Extending one class isn't big change as Widgets consist of many classes.
Who knows? Maybe someone is right when he accuses.
It's no wonder that someone writes "where's muh popcorn? Quick!" in advance.

I also found another compiler-base tool, which use gcc analyzer instead of clang.
Now even if Eclipse failed to provide service, I have more alternatives.
