I used to use Visual Studio on windows. What would be the equivalent IDE on UNIX ?

I use...

projects/myproj/src (source code)
projects/myproj/lib (output if we are building libraries)
projects/myproj/etc (any config files)

Final binaries get built into the myprog folder.

We use CMake to create our makefiles as they can be used cross platform

There are plenty but Eclipse CDT is probably the best featured. That said, I still use Visual Studio and cross-compile to Linux. I can do this because we use CMake to write the makefiles. CMake can generate Visual Studio solution files.
