We are in the middle of 2021 where many IDEs are disputed. Without a doubt, eclipse is # 1 for Java 2EE.

What happens is that it has an interface from the 90s. There are many IDEs that have better visualization (one of the best known today but IntelliJ IDEA is quite expensive annually).

Could you try to make a little more UI friendly like IntelliJ IDEA or VSC? with current theme?

I have been doing Java for many years and the concept that the best text editor is "word" does not match with having a good editor.

My post:

They should have a lighter design like the 2 IDEs discussed above. Thus, Eclipse would gain more market.

We are not in the 90's, to say "if it works, don't touch it." These kinds of minds do not prosper. Recycling is important.

It's free and it's open source. You could get involved.

I know that software is often treated like fashion where we see "new and improved" user interfaces that all too frequently feel like "just different but not better". But yes, fashion trends can't be completely ignored either...

I like Eclipse's UI. Yes it is a bit old fashioned but it is perfectly usable.

The old engineering wisdom is: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

You are free to create something new, but do not attempt to force us to use it.
