Hi Pedro,

I don't use an IDE at all for anything: instead I use gvim (with all the menus and toolbars hidden:-)

However, for those who like IDEs there is the Go Eclipse Plugin.

I am interested in trying GVim, actually installed it awhile back but kept getting lost in windows file systems to do anything useful with it and returned to Linux.
I usually boot my thinkpad into Ubuntu but the battery life and wi-fi performance is pretty sad compared to Windows.
Is there a guide to programming Go using GVim under Windows?

Hi Igor,

I've been using vim (and then gvim) for 22 years---but it took me a decade to get really good at it (and I'm still merely an advanced not expert user). So while I love gvim and wouldn't use anything else, it requires a lot of effort to learn so you might prefer something easier...

Go comes with vim syntax highlighting files. In the Go distribution look inside the misc/vim directory.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
