I decided to give Eclipse another try today. Downloaded the latest version (3.2.2 after all the updates) and the packages necessary for c/c++ coding.

LetsFilm.com — A unique community website project that plans to bring thousands of talented minds on the same online platform for the purpose of creating a "complete mainstream film," was launched today.
The project has officially begun building its first film called "The Bomb Within," a story that unfolds in a post 9/11 era, surrounding the discovery of a new biochemical weapon. Lets Film has written a synopsis of the script and posted it online, which a global community of thousands of talented, budding scriptwriters is expected to takeover and drive to completion.
Commenting on the launch, Hinesh Jethwani, Founder & Head, Lets Film, said, "Through this unique community website, we plan to bring talented individuals together that are passionate about movies and have a willingness to share and learn from one another. This would be the first time that anyone in the world has attempted to make a complete commercial film that will be starred, written, produced, directed, edited and distributed, by a team of people simply passionate about movies collaborating from all over the world."
Lets Film has setup a Wiki (the same technology that powers the immensely popular Open Source online encyclopedia called Wikipedia), which will allow virtually thousands of scriptwriters to work on the same script simultaneously. In the meanwhile, budding actors, directors, editors, producers, effects artists and even extras who want to play any kind of a role in the film can create their profiles on the site with their audios (voiceovers), videos (demo reels), photos (portfolios), profiles (resumes), etc.
An online rating system will allow both visitors and members to vote for their favorite members. A jury is in the process of being setup that will sort through profiles and pick the most popular members to play key roles in the making of the film.
However, whether somebody gets to play the lead role or not, at the end of the day, everyone is a winner, says Hinesh.
"Registration on LetsFilm.com is absolutely free for life. Members of Lets Film will be able to chat/IM/email each other, which will make it a true collaborative platform for them to expand their horizon. Plus, they will get the opportunity to interact with their counterparts located all across the world. For anyone with a genuine passion for movies, this would be an experience of a lifetime," he adds.
From the days of the dotcom fallout, the Internet has evolved into a new avatar, more popularly known as Web2.0. UGC or User Generated Content is at an all time high. Internet users from all over the world are contributing and sharing their knowledge through open media like blogs, forums and chat rooms. Lets Film's unique attempt at making a "complete commercial" film by bringing together people from all over the world on the Internet is an innovative spin-off on UGC.
"Sites like YouTube, DailyMotion and GoogleVideo have started a unique era for Web 2.0, something I like to term as User Generated Movies — i.e. UGM. It's about time that a complete User Generated Movie be played at your nearest cinema hall," says Hinesh.
Lets Film expects community-styled filmmaking to challenge closed-door proprietary fillmmaking that has long since been the norm in the film industry.
