OS/2 and eComStation OpenJDK had been released as GA for OS/2 and eComStaion. This allows eCS-OS2 users to run modern Java apps on their platform. The development is open source and had been in part sponsored by donations of the community.

That's not really true, just the fact that other IDE's are slow as well does not justify that Eclipse is slow. (And yes I think it's slow... Komodo IDE / PyCharm (based on IntelliJ) are all faster.

Also I do still think most java apps are slow... but that's not the worst.

In my experience (on Linux) java desktop applications are the only onces that can actually kill my desktop nowadays...

This goes for Eclipse (SWT), JDownloader (SWING?) and others..

The fact that they cannot seem to play nice with multiple screens, kill compiz every so often, mess with focus, steal focus with focus-follows-mouse... all means that I still tent to avoid java as the plague ;)
