Some of the points are well captured, like
how the different parts/languages are integrated. Some items are just bugs
or feature requests that should be raised (thanks Mickael). Other things,
like the missing debugger or content assist features are just wrong. Perspectives
are loved or hated, but at any rate, they can be totally ignored by the
user if not loved. Because Eclipse has so many different users that it
tries to please, it also has (too) many options that can be configured.
No matter which defaults we choose for those options, there will always
be a number of people that will complain for sure.

Why we dropped Eclipse in favour of IntelliJ | Java Code Geeks
This is well written and points out some
significant flaws. A lot of the root cause comes to the culture of Eclipse
and it's organization. It's depressing to think about that since there
don't seem to be any easy answers.
