It's not that I'm a leech, it's just that desktop apps aren't my bag, man. What I hated the least about NetBeans is it allowed me to concentrate on coding my code without telling me I had to write plugins or whatever. I don't want a platform or an SDK or anything; I just want a usable text editor that works nicely with a few different types of code. I don't need something that tries to run all my tests and run my dev servers or anything, I want a lightweight editor. Some syntax highlighting options (pluginable, if you must), RegEx search/replace, that's about all I need. I want to use it, I don't want to learn its fucking macro language. Right now I'm using jEdit. I hate it. But I hate it less than I hate vi or emacs.

Chevrolet bribed some ethics-free academics to come up with a fake equation for publicity purposes. The academics took the money and invented a stupid equation per spec. Then Chevrolet issued a press release, and gullible media outlets obligingly reprinted it and discussed it. A victory for Chevrolet's marketing department, a defeat for academic integrity and sensible journalism. Don't be part of these scams.
