    I keep my taskbar on the right/left side.

    Think about it. For any given window you've got menus, tabs and (possibly several layers of) toolbars at the top and probably a status bar at the bottom... and monitors are perpetually getting shorter and fatter. Because that's precisely what we all want. Less vertical room to read shit and more blank whitespace.

    I mean look at this:

    Why do interface designers keep using valuable vertical space instead of just throwing shit somewhere in the gigantic void to the left or right?

    Nor do I. People talk about how useful some features are which I didn't even know it had. For example: Refactoring.

    Oh, duh. You have to use &&, not ||.
    You're saying "If the gender isn't male, write this. If the gender isn't female, write this."
    So if you enter "male", it'll think Oh, "male" != "female", I have to write it.
    Oh...

    This.

    This.

    Pisses me off most especially on my netbook - vertical space is extremely limited. Thankfully, Microsoft knew the pitfalls of having a horizontal-only taskbar and has let us pin it vertically in most, if not all, of their operating systems.

    Now if they could fix my IDE so I can dock windows on secondary monitors without crashing after going in to / out of debug mode, I would be happy. Either that, or don't have all the windows migrate down and to the right 4 pixels every time I attach a debugger.



    Surely I am not the only person who puts the taskbar vertically on an auxiliary monitor. ...and for that matter, the solution explorer on an auxiliary monitor. It leaves enough space to view code side-by-side on the IDE while keeping vertical space to a maximum (without rotating the display, of course).



    Plus, it allows me to view opinions on forums in 1080p - the viewing resolution intended by most posters

    I love aero snap for this reason alone, I can quite easily jam my browser (or other reference) on one side, and the IDE on the other without having to guess where the halfway point of the screen is.

    Though it doesn't excuse UI designers not thinking about using that extra horizontal space.

    Since this is pretty much IDE-mania right here. Could anyone recommend one for linux? Possibly something that doesn't kill eyes.

    Hint hint, Code::Blocks

    How does Code::Blocks kill your eyes, exactly? Seems fine to me. And you can always change the look of it.

    Yeah, Code::Blocks has to be one of the least offensive FOSS IDEs. And it doesn't OMNOM your memory like Eclipse.

    I use Sublime, which I prefer slightly to Notepad++. Sublime looks cooler with that minimap while Notepad++ is a little more user friendly, but they both have some nice default themes with dark backgrounds and neutral colours.



    I need to find some good GCC x86 Assembly syntax colouring for both of them though.

    printhex()?

    There's the %x format specifier for the printf family of functions.

    I know; I wrote it for printing the hex values of large strings/arrays in bulk nicely aligned and formatted.

    What do you like about sublime more than notepad++ just out of interest?

    So far I'm loving the Minimap, the smoother UI and the Python console (seems pretty neat, thought I haven't played with it much).

    Somebody should make one.

    There's a "textmap" plugin for gedit, although gedit is a little wonky under Windows. Also the plugin doesn't do proper antialiasing/downsampling, so the image is just an unintelligible mess.

    Currently using Eclipse for a change, I like how it integrates tightly with GIT and project management systems (I was using Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate before, but dropped it due to the fact it had no version control at all). Not so keen on how it handles deployment (damnit, I don't want to have to go through the Export menu every time I want to test again)

    Yeah, it's still a bit ugly, but it gets the job done.

    I occasionally use Gedit and Eclipse, but this is a laptop and I like my keyboard shortcuts.

    Also, yes, it's in French, it's a school project.
