Since we used Sun Workshop, integrated via ToolTalk with Xemacs, at my first
job, I learned the One True Editor within my first year of learning C. I
haven't really taken the time to learn another IDE since then.
Given your previous statement about Emacs, I'll mention some IDE's I've seen
but never used. It's up to you to investigate, try them, and report back. :)
Code Crusader http://www.newplanetsoftware.com/
Code Warrior http://www.metrowerks.com/
And graphical debuggers
I've also seen quite a few listed on www.sourceforge.net (don't know which
ones are mature enough to use).
Note that some of these products are commercial and/or non-open, if that
matters to you. You stated a desire for something "fancier" than vi, but
fancy IDEs always seem to come with their own paradigm for development in an
attempt to hide the details of messy things like running
gcc -o hello_world hello_world.c
Thus, I'm not sure whether a fancy IDE will have a shallower learning curve
