Since day one, eclipse has been compared to netbeans and reviewers
always conclude their article reminding that whatever the beauty of
eclipse, it is missing support for J2EE, JSP, <copy your favorite
buzzwords here :-)>...

This is still true today out of the box when taking the Eclipse SDK.
However with the growth of the ecosystem and the first releases of the
Webtools project, we now have the potential to put an end to revert the

To do that, I think that the foundation should make available on their
download page "functionnal eclipse" (sorry I can't find a good word)
that would target a certain audience.
Right now I can think of three downloads:
- Eclipse for pure java and plug-in developers (probably today's eclipse
- Eclipse for web developers (Platform + JDT + Webtools (and prereqs)
(what about including an open-source webserver here?))
- Eclipse for C developers (Platform + CDT (and a C compiler on the
platform where it is not obvious that the user has one))

Of course I realize here the headhake caused by the creation of such
partitions, but we have to remember that the audience is not a plug-in
writer but instead a tool that it can do its day to day work.

Any idea comments, or just a deadline ;-)
