For Linux I rather Netbeans

Negative Review by Wassaw about Eclipse Also mentioning: NetBeans Nov 2014

First of all, I haven't used this two (Eclipse & NetBeans) in Windows. Only in Linux, but for this last SO, I certainly rather NetBeans over Eclipse, since it's more Linux-Friendly.
So far, I have had no problem at all running NetBeans under Linux, but in Eclipse, I had weird behaviour/bug sometimes, that's why I decided to use NetBeans as default.


It's because eclipse works better with oracle java than with openjdk, you will see that with this last one, parts like windowbuilder doesn't work (it doesn't work neither if you are using compiz manager, with ubuntu unity). Anyway I have seen that the last versions of eclipse are less limux-friendly until they fix it, I think that windows is the main platform, swing
