Hey I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask and sorry if its not, But I'm needing an alternative to Visual Studio 2012 for Linux and I found 2 so far called Netbean and Eclipse, Out of those or any other ones you guys may know of which is the closest or similar to VS 2012? Thank you for your time guys.
It depends. In what language you are going to program.
If it is java, eclipse or netbeans are excelent.
C++ or C You can use netbeans, codeblocks, or try qt creator
If you are planning to program c#. Use Mono.
