Hello -

I have some time on my hands and would like to teach myself Java. I am currently running Windows Vista, but might upgrade to Windows 7 (Home Version). I am just wondering which version of Eclipse I should download and install on my machine for Windows Vista and Windows 7 (If I upgrade)? Thanks.

The latest and greatest will do the trick. Install it to a path such as
C:\Users\scott\eclipse. Install a JDK (rather than a mere JRE), from Sun
would be good: go to java.sun.com, try Downloads -> Popular Downloads ->
Java for Developers, the choose either Java SE 8's or 7's JDK download
button. I advise you install that to a private place under
C:\Users\scott then look at http://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse.ini to
understand how to tell Eclipse about it.

Cheers
