hi all,
i recently started using eclipse, but it is very annoying for me having to
run two eclipse-setups, one for my linux account and one for my winxp

as most of eclipse is platform independent, why isnt it possible to run just
one eclipse setup for both?

yes, i found howtos for importing projects and using my work an both setups
this way. but i still need to administer my plugins and eclipse updates
twice, also they are the same on both setups.

why isnt it possible to encapsulate the platform dependent stuff
(workspace-path, and so on) in some system specific config? or is it?

Short answer: you can do this; it just involves merging the contents of a Linux install and Windows install into the same directory structure.
