Developers Version

Postby mickinator » Fri Apr 04, 2008 6:24 pm

Maybe make a developers version, with stuff like eclipse/kdevelop preinstalled, and with some sdks installed.... I know this was done with ubuntu... not by ubuntu, but I think it would be a good idea?!?

To be honest I dont think its necessary. Really, if you're a developer you're smart enough to know how to sudo apt-get install kdevelop

Sorry

True true, but I remember when I was migrating to Linux first, I was told to because it is good for developing, and when I got it installed and figured out the basics there was nothing to do development with. :O

Now I'm more than capable of getting the stuff myself, but for the noobies!

Will somebody please think of the noobies?

Basics are there in the distro out of the box.
You got a text editor (gedit/Kate or even vim/nano) and compilers.
If you really need a complete IDE to manage huge projects, then, as LostOverThere says, you're smart enough to get information about what IDEs are available for linux and to install them.

It is a bad habit from windows developpers to forget how to compile using a command line... (yes, it is possible, you can even compile C# with a single command)
In libro veritas

Now switched to : ArchLinux

If you're a noobie, you really shouldn't playing with developer versions, you should be learning the basics of Linux. Once you have that down, then you can move on to getting all the developer tools and start doing some work. I don't think noobies will know what to do with developer tools, other than break their system, and be jacked because we will not know what they did in the dev tools to hase the system, or how to fix it.

If you are familiar with programming, why not learn bash? Then you can aptitude, compile, apt-get, smart, or whatever you way to developer bliss.
