I've never used MSVS so I can't comment on their tools, but I have
seen 'gvd' (GNU Visual Debugger) and it looks really nice.  It is a
GTK+ gui front-end to gdb (you still get a shell frame to interact
directly with gdb if you want).  I like it better than DDD because I
like GTK+ better than Motif.
