I have used autotools since I started programming on Linux and got used to the whole process. When you first encounter autotools, you are bombarded by numerous scripts and files and can get intimidated very quickly. When you manage to get yourself together, you begin to realize that there are only TWO files that need editing; configure.ac and Makefile.am.
Cmake has always managed to irritate me and cause an overall feeling of disgust. I know that many famous open source projects use Cmake and would like to know your opinion whether I should start using Cmake for my next C project, or continue with well known autotools. I don't plan to support any other platform but Linux (x86 and ARM embedded systems).
Comment away ;)
