I want to get Eclipse for Red Hat.
There are 2 choices:

Linux RH 7.1/SuSE 7.1 (x86/Motif) eclipse-SDK-2.0.1-linux-motif.zip
Linux RH 7.1/SuSE 7.1 (x86/GTK 2) eclipse-SDK-2.0.1-linux-gtk.zip

The difference is ostensibly Motif/GTK
Why would I choose one or the other?

I think the idea is that supporting two toolkits, the majority of Linux
users can be reached with a compatible version of Eclipse. The 2.x series
GTK version relies on GTK 2, which not everyone has. My opinion is that
the GTK version is much nicer looking, it's what I use on Mandrake. As far
as stability, no problems with either.
