I am once again trying Eclipse, mainly for dealing with Java code. I’ve never been a big fan of IDE‘s , choosing instead to live by the “unix way” of stitching together small specific tools into a chain that works how I want it to. jEdit has been my text editor of choice for years now. Yes, I’m one of those people who lives in their editor, and had customized it, and tweaked it, and made it mine to the point that I’m not about to give it up. Still, I’ll see what the Eclipse has to offer…

    I’m a big fan of Eclipse, and have everyone in our office using it. It can be a bit slow on older machines, and we’ve had some CVS hiccups with it as well (usually when we’re going back and forth between CVS on the cmdline and CVS in Eclipse). But good luck with trying it out; hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

    Big fan for years, but now miles behind Netbeans (which I’ve hated for years) for web application development.

    I’m an Editplus boy myself.
