BeOS & Derivatives Gutenprint has been ported to Haiku. "Michael Pfeiffer (wait, what?) intends on ironing out the configuration options and fixing any bugs that users experience. Please test out Gutenprint on Haiku with your supported printer and report back here, or file a bug report if you encounter problems. Anyone with a colour cartridge?"

In a way I think you're correct. I rarely use the rapid part of drag n drop controls on a window or something like that. But a good integrated debugger, code sense/intellisense refactoring tools etc helps you speed up your development.

I used Pe for several years, with a makefile system, but back then BeOS lacked of a good debugger. The one that was released had potential but was way too unstable for real work.

Not sure how good the Haiku debugger is atm, but it is being worked on, and it will probably be awesome if I know the people involved correctly.
Why have a debugger part of IDE's when the OS knows a lot more about what's going on...

I don't know if should take that comment serious, THQ.

"Why have a debugger part of IDE's when the OS knows a lot more about what's going on..."
Well your OS isnt writing your code, its feedback to the developer. In my world I want the feedback to be understandable, transparent (read:integrated so it doesnt interupt my work flow).

XCode does a good job here with debugging/editing.

A debugger is essential, but if "integrated debugger" is all you want out of your IDE I've got news for you... emacs does that.
