    Hi

    I want to install kdevelop on windows xp, mainly for C/C++ projects and programs. How can I do that, and then how to install C/C++ compilers, like gcc, for Kdevelop?

    If that is not possible, is there any free C/C++ compiler (IDE) for windows like turboc? Please help me, I am totally confused.

    Aditya

    Bloodshed Dev C++ is a very good IDE, you can go for it.

    If you are interested to work woth Kdevelop, then you might want to wait for sometime. WIth KDE4 around the corner and under heavy development, we are going to have kdelibs ported to windows platform, and all the KDE goodies like Konqueror, Amarok, KOffice, KDevelop etc running on Windows as well

    Is it for sure? Cos I do believe many people will be unhappy with that. I don't mind windows users enjoying open source apps specially amarok.

    @Mehul, @GNUrag is right. I read somewhere that the KDE team is porting KDE to Windows O.S!!!

    I am ready to wait... :-D. Anyways, I am going to adopt linux and dump windows completely. I was just waiting till I get the feel and now I think I have, but since my college and the teachers know nothing about this, I have to write the code and compile it to create exe files which I will have to show them there, and to compile the files, I want windows as other things will take time.

    And Dev C++ is really good IDE. Two thumbs up, hats down.

    Qt from version 4 is already GPLed on Win32 platform, as a result of which kdelibs is being ported to win32... which will in turm pave way for easy porting of all the KDE goodies.

    The reasoning given by KDE developers is that there are a large number of excellent FOSS developers who code for Windows platform.. The main idea behind porting the underlying kdelibs is to give them a demo of what all Qt4/libkde is capable of doing and inturn attract that excellent pool of talent..

    Afterall we all want KDE (and FOSS) to appeal to all communities and attract all kinds of talents regardless of OS boundaries :)
