IDEs? It depends on what your target applications are. The two I know 
the most about are Eclipse and KDevelop. KDevelop works very well with 
the Qt toolkit and KDE desktop, less well with the "other" toolkits and 
desktops. Eclipse is more generic, but is huge and Java-centric. 
Fortunately, though, Eclipse is highly portable and modular. Then again, 
doesn't everyone use Emacs or Vim? ;)

A free Windows midi softsynth? Isn't there something built in to the 
sound drivers? IIRC I can double-click on a ".MID" file on a Windows 
machine and hear it play.
