Some call it harsh, I call it talking pictures ;)

I already said, that I did not understand eike, when he said:

For my way of thinking, build-support is 30% of an IDE, so cut of the build-
support from an IDE is like cut off a man being male.

The propaganda from Qt's homepage says about QtCreator:

So that's exactly the context, I was talking about.

Well, before looking for help you have to realize, that you need help or that 
there might be help out there.

Let me focus on another sample:
My linux box is localized. All environment settings are fine and all gui-apps, 
that support localization are able to extract my language from environment.
No magic.
So if a gui app starts in english - what would you think?
Is your first thought: hey, may be something is wrong with my environment ... 
or do you think: 	ok, that app-developers don't support localization.

... and if you think the second choice, why should you start google or touch 
help system?

Where does a normal user should know from, that "language of operating system" 
is NOT the configured language of the active user, that all other gui-apps know 
and use?

kind regards
