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?"

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.

I don't understand what you don't understand but I suggest you look up dtrace for an example of what can happen when OS devs do debugging tools. Not saying Haiku's debugger will be anything like that though.

Most of the interesting things like memory management, crucial data structs and so on are part of the OS. I'd prefer nicely integrated to the OS rather than bolted on by an app.

That doesn't exclude the option that the 3rd party IDE integrates the debugging tools that the OS provides.
