Re: [ide-dev] Java IDEs comparison

Mickael, thanks for this...I was suspicious myself but never even considered how bad it was (my thought was that the may be using a somewhat representative data set but from North America only or something). I strongly suspect that we still have quite a lead worldwide since Asia is *really* into OSS...

with a nice bashing of the stats and conclusion of the blog post, and an interesting link to another survery:

Reading the comments, many mention the workspace as an issue. They don't complain with the concept of IntelliJ "projects" which is equivalent.
What's usually blamed is that preferences are not stored globally. Oomph preference recorder already has it fixed, right?
I also believe that the old habit of using multiple workspaces is something that confuses users and hide the power of Eclipse. Keeping a single workspace is often simpler, and you really can have hundreds of projects open simultaneously for different languages. What could we do to "educate" existing users to not care about workspaces and always work in the same one?
