Right. just downloading IntelliJ Idea. Seems like a nice IDE. Netbeans is fairly cool, but its slow on my machine in work. so, just downloading it and seeing if its any good. its not free, but its got a 30 day trial for testing. @ $499, its more expencive then most java IDE’s (Netbeans being free, Borlands jbuilder personal being free too and Eclipse being free too). right. first impressions: This is fast! its a lot faster then netbeans. its nicer looking, has some sweet features, and something i just found but havent used yet, local CVS. so you cant break code too much, i think. have to see what else this does.
