Comment: Why did they have to use Eclipse? (Score 1, Troll) 66

Eclipse has to be the worst environment ever made--and I've used Lotus Designer.

It's great Adobe made a legit IDE for their various tech(Flash, ActionScript, ColdFusion). But when it's built on top of the steaming pile that's Eclipse, how effective of a tool can it really be?

I do Flash and ColdFusion development. I've tried to use Flex Builder 3, and the Flash Builder 4 betas. It just isn't good. Every time I try to write code with something based on Eclipse, I'm fighting the IDE more than I'm actually writing code. The same can be said for CFEclipse, or Aptana.

There NEEDS to be better tools. But as soon as I see Eclipse, it's a pass.

September starts the NFL season, the NHL is kicking off to get ready in October. Baseball is entering the playoff stretch.

Get some concrete information on the holiday releases, as well as a couple great games that get released a bit before the season.

It's getting cool enough where outdoor activities are really enjoyable.

All sorts of great stuff happens in Sept/Oct

Computer programmers do it byte by byte.
