As a part of a school project, I am looking into the public perception that people see Eclipse as "slow, buggy and unstable". Most people I talk with who are Java developers says that Eclipse would be the last tool they would use and people who would use it has "no respect for their code". If it really is that bad, why doesn't the Eclipse community recognize these issues and do something about it?

One theory I have is that the hate between IDEs is much like what tools you are used to work with. I hated Windows 8 in the beginning when I started using it, but I got used to it and now I would prefer using Windows 8 above Windows 7. Developers often think the way they they are used to do things is often "the only correct and right way" to do something and changing a developers habit is normally incredibly hard.

I don't know. But I like the visual styles of eclipse. Perhaps it's just a coincident that many people around you don't use eclipse.

I mainly use C in my projects, but have also learned using java and c++ in college. And I have tried Visual Code and IntelliJ.
The only thing I feel bad about eclipse is perhaps its plugins market. Every time I install something, the whole IDE just freezes. But other than that, everything seems fine to me :)

I absolutely love it and prefer it over JetBrains products. I think debugging is much clearer and easier to follow especially in c++.

I always liked the visual styles of eclipses. Perhaps it is just a coincidence that many people also choose the same option.

I also like the visual styles of eclipses and so far I haven't had a problem.

Eclipse _is_ slow, buggy and unstable.
It is a good IDE tool, but is is also slow, buggy and unstable.
