Eclipse has potential

Eclipse as a whole is friggin awesome. However, the shortcomings of some of the projects has nothing to do with Eclipse itself, but the people who develop projects on top of it. On the plus side, you have BIRT and the Java IDE, you can see the potential that it has. Then there are the incredibly horrible UML and C++ IDE's, and you just have to shake your head. People tend to forget that Eclipse is a platform for applications, not just an IDE. The failings of some projects built on Eclipse is in no way a reflection of Eclipse itself.
