I am mostly using Source Navigator, I have to say that I like it because 
it does not force me to think in GNOME or something else specific, I can 
easily start writing code for 8 bit micro or just take myself familiar 
with someone else's code. It can make a flat makefile aswell with simple 
dialogs, but I prefer to write Makefiles  by myself, and then I just let 
this tool to use external Makefile for build command.

Best Regards ...
