It's frequently the case that people who dont have something spend a lot
of time explaining why they think they dont need it or, and worse,
telling others why they dont need something. Only later when they get it
do they realise they had been slightly intransigent and possibly even
closed minded : I know I pooh poohed eclipse for ages until I saw what
it could do. It's always worth considering why something exists :
invariably because people wanted and needed it.

All that said, as I mentioned before, the benefits of Emacs overrides
the benefits of Eclipse in most cases - for me. And thats because I live
in org-mode and gnus pretty much. And erc... and ....
