    Have to admit never had any sympathy for KDevelop... more so after appearance of QtCreator.
    Even when I had to do some notorious debugging on related fortran project I cried tears and used that atrocity called eclipse.

    I gave a try to KDevelop one day and I never regretted it. Amazing auto-completion and header/source sync for function signatures is just amazing. Never saw that in any other ide. It has better auto-completion than VS

    I guess everything is better than VS that rumbles through your sources for a half an hour and then stops working when you include something like boost. Maybe something changed for the better in a half decade but thats it.
    Every feature you listed (+context tooltip) works in QtCreator OOB, completely transparent/no lag.

    The quickopen feature in KDevelop is a must have feature.
    Other IDEs have stuff similar to "quickopen" but only for files, or only for open documents, or it doesn't even parse the entire code base. Completely worthless.

    Yup, KDevelop's context-based tooltips/file-opening/renaming/search tools are awesome. Better than anything else I've tried for C++, and one of very few IDEs I've seen that gets any useful information out of PHP at all.

    'Less memory' is definitely good - hopefully they've fixed some of the annoying transient minor bugs too - I get popups like:
    "KDevelop has broken somehow.
    Other than this distracting message, nothing of importance actually happened.
    Continue."
    far too often.

    KDevPlatform doesn't have a Fortran plugin so there would be neither full autocompletion nor debugging support like C++ has, it'd be barely more useful than Kate.

    Why would people spend time badmouthing software they barely know? Easy targets (small userbase) and appearing knowledgable?


    IMHO the only con of KDevelop is that unlike QtCreator it's not crossplatform, and I've got segfaults from time to time but this is getting better. But it has an impressive number of features for a Linux-only IDE (best CMake support of all IDE I'm aware of, much better tooltips than QtCreator (see pics for comparison), ...)

    KDevelop on the left, QtCreator on the right:
