C++ Development with Eclipse

Eclipse has been the only Java IDE I can comfortably use. And while I'm writing C++ code on Windows, Visual Studio is naturally my first choice. But what should I do if I need to develop Linux C++ code (okay, I know vim and xemaces are out there...)?

Luckily, there is Eclipse CDT (C/C++ Development Tools). It seems basically build (with make) and code completion works nice and neatly. What I'd like to test next is to see whether the relatively "tricky" things, such as code completion with templates and smart pointers, might work with this...
