Debian is the opposite. It has a strong quality service and a project leader, 
that looks for quality, therefor it is not just the best linux, its also a 
base for lots of variants.

I only like eclipse as an java ide. The rest ...

That was my first impression aside the very attractive look: whow, its really 
And even more: most things you need are there, where you look for it. That's 
that much of intuitive, that I don't understand André's position respect to 
debugger support - or better said: the reaction of an unsupported debugger 

May be my "poor" sounded respectless, where it never was that intention. At 
that point, I was talking as user, not as developer.

Talking about consistency: a little version check together with a nice popup: 
"your debugger version is unsupported. Please upgrade debugger to version xyz" 
would match the high quality of the rest of QtCreator.

Fully agree!
