Having not done any worth-mention active coding in past 2years, this is what
I write from memory :-)

OO Modelling and Visual Development, especially in terms of "free" UML
modelling support, in Netbeans 6.0/6.1 was far better than what was
available 'back-then' with Eclipse (I am talking of "free" tools). Also,
IMHO (and I know wars have started on such topics), from a initial
instialltion, download, deployment standpoing, the tight-packed Netbeans was
a bit easier to manage than Eclipse. However, my use of Eclipse and
Netbeans, and evaluation there-of, was for Java development.

For Python development (slight hobby, foo-bar programming), I've found
PyScripter (on Windows) to suffice in all respects, but a brief fling with
WingIDE showed that you can get that Eclipse mulitple-small window, multi
perspective 'type' features. I'm of the genre that likes their window
real-estate covered with multiple apps, and not 1 app hogging everything
micro-inch of screen space, so PyScripter, or Vim/Shell are what works for
me -- but then, it's enough for what I do.
