Romain Guy: Eclipse: reminding me every time I use why I normally don’t use it.
Anonymous Eclipse User: I want to get work done and not fight the tool no matter how free it is.
Why do I hate Eclipse ?
- It is slow.
- Search and autocomplete is poor.
- Requires quite some memory.
- Crashing and hanging constantly.
- Correct or incorrect way of closing Eclipse may cause workspace and settings crash.
I have switched to IntelliJ IDEA which seems to be able to read my mind.
