Another vote for Eclipse.

I don't mean to start a flamewar or anything, but Netbeans is horrid. Sun has been losing more and more developers to Eclipse. It's gotten so bad that they're bundling Netbeans with the Java 1.5 SDK. (I know you can get the SDK without it- but it seems very telling that they would bundle Netbeans around the time that less people are using it.) They've also been very sneaky- quoting the recent increase of Netbeans downloads as proof people like the program. When of course, the increased downloads have a lot to do with the bundle.

Not that Netbeans is *bad* or anything. Just that Eclipse has been and is better currently. Only recently has Netbeans been able to hold a flame against Eclipse. And that's because Sun's been playing catchup hardcore.

NetBeans. Eclipse does more, but chugs.


And NetBeans doesn't? JBuilder's load time blows NetBeans out of the water on my computer. But NetBeans does more than JBuilder, so...*shrugs*
