    In this interview, Tim Boudreau talks about the differences between the NetBeans and Eclipse communities' approach to creating an ecosystem around their respective IDEs. What's your take on the quality-vs-quantity argument? In general, what roles do you see NetBeans and Eclipse play in your daily work?

      The interveiw with Tim was really helpful in giving the veiw of the future of Netbeans.
      As for suggetions, i would like to take your veiw towards MS Visual Studio 2005. I happen to develop applications both in JAVA and C#.
      There are many features thta i have found in visual studio that i really miss in Netbeans. eg. advanced debugger veiw, multiple options in surround-with, automatic space addition in expressions (with mathematical symbols) etc.

      What i would like to suggest is to look at other IDE's that maynot be related to java but still have very good features. and since u are open community we can always demand for upgrades unlike Micosoft whom i cannot ask to add features that I like in Netbeans and are missing in Visual Studio :-)
