Hi!

I have some experience with C/C++ on linux enviroment and wanted to give the XCode a good run against KDevelop. I've heard it's very good & fast enviroment, but I have a problem. It was supposed to come with this iBook, but I just can't find it from those 2 dvd disks! What the hell?! Now what?

It is on one of the disk, but I would download it. Sign up for a free developer account and download the latest version of XCode.

Wasn't on 1st dvd at least, didn't touch the 2nd which included Classic enviroment. But there wasn't any special developer disk like I thought. Maybe such a tool will come with so-called pro-macs only...?

Well i downloaded it and am fiddling around with it.

I think you will find Xcode to be a little confusing at first, but don't give up on it too soon.

If you take the time to learn Objective C (you'll be able to learn enough of it to get by in a couple of hours), and then get the hang of Interface Builder and Cocoa Bindings you will totally love it.

Code Sense is getting better, but I still prefer the code completion in Netbeans because it's more predictable and faster. Of course Netbeans is Java only, so it's not an option for native OS X development.
