    MyEclipse is something that you have to pay for, this is seperate to the generic Eclipse. The fact that this is a link to a pay for product where a major feature being that it works on Vista (I would wonder how many of the Slashdot care if it works on Vista, let alone acquire it when they can put together Eclipse themselves). So he would be commenting on the actual product being linked to if your read the slashvertisement/article/press release. IMHO its an ad.

    When I came into my new job I was given MyEclipse as my dev environment. At first I was a little wary, cause I asked all the same questions everyone else seems to be asking now. Whats the big deal, why am I using this thing when Eclipse is free and I can do everything this does?

    After some time using it though, I realize there are some very useful features. For example, you can easily add struts, springs, and hibernate support to your application. There is a very handy GUI based struts config tools, as well as a way to generate hibernate mappings and all your POJOs automatically using a connection to your DB.

    On the other hand, these features have their draw backs. For example, some average Jon who really doesn't know how the stuff is supposed to work can come in a slap all this stuff together to make one horribly constructed and poorly designed application. People will use the technologies, and may even claim they now how to, on a resume, for example, but really not know.

    Having these automated tools, is a nice and handy time saver, but its no excuse for actually knowing how to do things by hand.

    Hmmm, this just looks like a commercially supported version of Eclipse. I suppose if one wants professional support, it could be something useful. But I'm pretty cheap/poor, so I'll have to pass and keep using the free Eclipse.
