It's been a little quiet lately. This is because I am working on a cute little project that I will be able to present soon. More when the time is ready.
Also Macromedia announced that their new Flex 2.0 environment (Flashbuilder) will be based on Eclispe.
Why on earth Eclipse?! I think this is the most slowest IDEs available. It's based on Java which makes it incredibly slow already and it's so blown up that it's unbelievable.
I just can't understand why developers would use such a tool. I am not willing to buy a GHz monster PC just to have an editor running there. That's a pure waste of money and electricity. Emacs is kinda slow already but it runs on a few MHz.
Can anyone explain to me why to use such a monster?
I thought that maybe everything changed for the better by now and downloaded the whole thing. That's 100MB already. This already shows how much memory it will consume. Ok, I still started it. It took more than 2 minutes on my Powerbook G4. Hello? The features it provides are so not worth that.
