I agree but I also think this can be fairly easily fixed.

Add File Navigator to eclipse - done ;)

...where do I find the "File Navigator"?

It does not exist yet, but I want to see one made.


We'll need to test and make sure editors will be okey opening outside
projects - but eclipse already have support opening files outside the workspace.

If you want to have more advanced editing and building then you need a project (not really different from what is required by intellji, netbeans and even vi/emacs)
and the file navigator can even expose this.

Michael Istria got a prototype for this.

Then add in the auto-magic import of projects that will detect what kind of project
is inside a directory and I think we have something very compelling.
