Have you tried the recently released 3.1 version? It seems to be a tad
snappier than the old version.

The debugger in CodeWarrior is quite crappy IMHO. Unlike visual
studio, it doesn't show the return values of function calls. The
editor is also quite lacking, without the ability to create macros

I agree about the project management part. Though I would still love
to use Eclipse instead, if it only was supported for my line of work

Eclipse allows this as well. ctrl+m is maximize/unmaximize.
