One shouldn't use Java w/ Eclipse for everything because it doesn't fit every situation.
And on a side note, my computer is a lowly 1.4 ghz with 512 MB ram. I find eclipse to be too slow ;-)
I know, I was being sarcastic :-P. You're exactly right. As much as I like Eclipse, it only turns Java from intolerable to tolerable to work with in my eyes. I'd still prefer to write Perl in notepad or pico (although I use jedit... mmmm jedit) than Java with Eclipse. You argue for a language just because it has a great IDE.
