David Berlind is on a roll with anti-netbeans assertions asking this time “Is 2006 the year that NetBeans begins to unhitch its wagon from the Java horse?”.
As for the “It does Linux too” comment about Eclipse, it’s simply funny when you look at the issues Eclipse faces on Linux and 64-bit platforms…. NetBeans is Swing and portable as such (they even have OpenVMS support!).
Update: thanks to Huntch for this Python in NetBeans link.
