05:34 pm - Eclipse IDE
I detest it.

I've spent the best part of a day now downloading different versions of Eclipse, it's plugins, updating linux, the jdk, a 64-bit jdk ... trying to get a working combination. Seriously, why does the JDK that runs the IDE need to have anything at all to do with the target JDK? Why is a Java IDE so flaky it requires specific versions of Gnome et al to get it to work?

Finally, I got it running. Then I remembered why I'd avoided it like a communicable disease for so many years.

Eclipse has "projects". You can create a new project and do stuff, somewhere you can close a project, but of "File > Open project" there is no sign. People, what were you thinking?
