No offense this program has very good potential, just tone it down a bit man, your so focused on features your ruining this things user-friendlyness, I mean I can't even figure out where the output of the compiled program is, nor can I figure out how to change where it goes, I mean I may just be an idiot but I've never had this many problems with an IDE before.

I agree. After 3 minutes of playing around, I STILL couldn't work out 
how to create a "hello world" program. At that point I gave up and 
uninstalled. This program is by far the most user-hostile IDE I've ever 
seen. You really need to improve that.
