Re: [ide-dev] Inconsistent Eclipse user experience

I share the vision that this post about general inconsistence in Eclipse is actually a set of 5 "normal" bugs and that it is not that much about the IDE in general.

However, something we can see here is that users are not able to detect who is to blame for a bug, and blame Eclipse when they install an external plugin which has bugs. I also had some NetBeans users complaining against Eclipse because the m2e catalog was populated with connectors that couldn't be installed. However, those connectors are not Eclipse project.
For most users, anything that can be installed in Eclipse is Eclipse. And whenever something fails in Eclipse, then they blame Eclipse. Not sure what we can do to avoid this confusion, except answering to such messages on forums.
