BUT as this thread was originally talking about Java IDEs and I inadvertently turned it into a Java vs "insert language here" discussion, I think I'll leave it at that. Apparently you prefer C/C++ and Lisp. I like C/C++ just fine but don't consider Java "inelegant" in comparison. To each their own.Registered Linux user #270181

It's not really a personal preference, unless you call Occam's Razor a personal preference.
But I'll stop here, since this has really gone OT.

I like java, actually it could say it's my favorite developing language. So far, i've used C++, Visual Basic, C, PowerBuilder and i just believe, personally, that java adapts perfectly to what i must accomplish. I used the new C# .net for some uni projects, and it is so much like java that it seems MS just couldn't stand having something better done by another company, so they came up with a whole framework that so far runs smoothly only in 2k and XP. What a waste of time and money. I'd rather stick with java, you can get an IDE and get java for free @ sun and start learning. Somehow this opinion of mine now reflects my standing position about MS, since i now adore GNU/Linux and anything related to Java.
