I must admit: Eclipse is the best tool in its class
Well, this is the sound opinion of a person who has been using it for years. There's no history: Eclipse is just the best tool of its class. I've tried some alternatives, but nothing allowed me to operate quickly and having such a clean result as Eclipse did. Just nothing. And if you're in pain, trying to deliver when operating in the field, maybe in a problematic environment, Eclipse just gets you out of your troubles in a few minutes.
Don't trust of what competitors say, it's marketing hype, Eclipse is just the best tool of its class.
Long life to Eclipse! :-)
