Emanuel, so based on your extensive experience with Eclipse it's a total pain? 
Right. I can tell you from having used if for a heck of a lot longer than you 
used it for that, configured with the proper settings, it can be significantly 
snappier than Emacs - at least under Windows. In fact the general clunkiness of 
Emacs' scrolling still bothers the heck out of me. As for which of these two 
environments is easier to get accustomed to for someone new to them, please 
don't suggest that it's Emacs. For years now, Eclipse has had straightforward 
UI discoverability through the use of Ctrl-3 which allows you to search through 
all commands, views, menus, etc., from one spot.

Just to be clear, I'm not contesting Emacs' greater extensibility and power 
overall, just your statement that Eclipse is "a pain" and, by implication, that 
Emacs is not, from a noob's perspective.
