In the spirit of getting new people on the project up to speed and leveraging their familiarity with existing Windows tools, what are possible options for cross-platform editing/development?
Of course, the Windows people could learn vi/Emacs, X, Eclipse/NetBeans, etc, but this would involve a period of learning, per-person.
Is there any combination of technologies/tools that would let developers that are most familiar with a Windows tool-chain help out on a Linux-based project?
E.g. One developer would like to use UltraEdit.
For reference, the Linux project(s) are all daemon processes written in C++ and the development server has:
- Version Control systems include RCS, CVS and SVN.
- Compile tools are GCC and a Make-like build system.
- X Windows
Suggestions don't have to be free/open-source, but an indication of licensing terms would be greatly appreciated
