theKarlisK815814dI'll call myself lucky to have skipped over Xen - I fell in love with Qemu and KVM ... or rather with Libvirt and virt-manager. And I get what you mean with Atlassian - been there, done that... when you actually use their products you start running into things just plain missing and then tracking down three f**king different bug tickets or just feature requests from three different time periods!
Also Kate = ❤️
It's steadily becoming my go-to editor for anything starting from notes to scripts and large configs.
m00gendai1614dI work in a non IT company and not as a dev but I do write code (long story). Since our software we are able to install is curated, only Kate was available as an "IDE". Ive grown to like it very much. Fortunately for the Java code I have to write I can use IntelliJ. We had IBM ODM before, an Eclipse based Business Rule Engine and it was all the ba
D stuff from Eclipse somehow made worse; The deployment was done via an interface that requires Internet Explorer. It didnt work with anything else.
As for git GUIs, we work with TortoiseGit since non tech people have to use git (as I said long story) and TortoiseGit is... Easy enough to understand and not fuck up completely. Since all we have to do is push to a sandbox where everything is screened by someone who knows his stuff and deployed to production from there, therefore learning git beyond commit/push isnt necessary, having a GUI is kinda nice.
Company recently migrated to Microsoft Office 365 and its been a complete clusterfuck.
purist122614dI have honestly never seen anyone shit on Gedit and praise the usability of git cli in a single post lol. Kudos.
I would love to use kde stuff.. if it didnt install all the kde stuff in the world just for an editor. Also some people like minimalism. Like me. But gedit still cut it. I would much rather use vscode / sublime than gedit.
hjk101340114dReally like gnome 3, joined the party late so perhaps not seen the early fails.
I was wondering why I couldn't find a lot of settings or things that I used to do with gedit. You are right they completely fucked it over. Kate used to be my go to editor a long time ago. It was awesome. I was on Gentoo and most applications I used where GTK so dropped it as gedit was fine too and not compiling Qt saved a lot of time.
theKarlisK815813d@purist I was in the same boat when I was on GNOME... I still like it, but I can't live without tweaks and extensions, which, keep breaking all the time between updates. For a while, I even had both GNOME(as main DE) and KDE(as fallback and to gain access to KDE apps) installed but eventually just switched over to KDE and permanently said goodbye to an extension or two, for which there was no equivalent replacement in KDE.
localpost3I prefer the best ones. The worst ones usually aren't very good.
