People who are using other compilers than gcc doesn't have to wait for
minutes. On my Firebee, I can compile a project like AHCC in seconds -
using AHCC. I do all development on Ataris running MiNT. I use my Ataris
for coding 99% of the time. If I switched to a PC for development - why
would I develop for Ataris?

If you want a proper IDE to develop GEM applications on, you can't use
any of the existing ones. You need to create something GEM specific. Or
maybe port GTK or something to GEM and create *huge* applications that
runs very slowly on everything but ARAnyM on a very quick PC.
