The problem with Eclipse, IMO, is Java.  I've tried 3.1 on a WinXP machine
and, like just about any Java program, it's incredibly slow and a real pain
to use.  On a (similarly spec'd) Mac OS X Tiger machine, it runs nice and
smoothly and is reasonably nice to use.  I'd happily recommend that Mac
users try Eclipse, but never a Windows (Python) programmer.
