Rob Fahrni is unhappy with the development tools available for Linux:
From a development perspective I can see why scripting style languages are so popular. The development tools that I'm aware of for C/C++ developers are pathetic. I know, I know, it's all about typing commands, piping this into that, but would it kill someone to create a great development environment? I'll stop griping about this some day, but for now it's the bane of my existence. I guess I've become spoiled to the absolute beauty that is Visual Studio. It just works, and it works really, really well. Edit, compile, debug; as God meant it. The next time you're having a bad day debugging your Windows based application be thankful you're not using gdb.
There's always VisualWorks, which is available on Windows (and everything else). You don't have to live with text editors and command line compilers :)
