MyEclipse VP is blogging
Wayne Parrott, the VP of Product Management at Genuitec (makers of MyEclipse) has started a blog.
For the past 3 years I have been involved with a great team at Genuitec (www.genuitec.com) of which I am a founder. While my title at Genuitec is VP, Product Management, I think of myself more as an Eclipse technologist and product delivery specialist. These days I spend most of my professional time working on Genuitec's MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench product. A quick fly by of my resume looks something like this: several startup failures, numerous consulting engagements, and some really cool work on the Human Genome Project and NASA's AI Section that dates back to the '80s.
Very cool! I love it when companies get closer to their customers via weblogs. Now we just need to get Wayne to start blogging some tips and tricks.

Just checked their download page - they support Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX. I've never used IntelliJ myself, though I've heard good things about it. MyEclipse adds quite a bit in the way of productivity wizards and different file format support. The only hiccup I've had with MyEclipse was their last release cycle, where they dumped their in house jsp editor for what IBM contributed to the web group, and released that as final w/o any more betas. Huge issues - which are I believe mostly sorted out now. $29/yr though and their almost real-time forum support makes it a pretty good deal.
Matt - congrats on the big little addition to the family. I've got a three and a half year old, and a one and a half year old, both little girls. They are busy.

As for comparing Eclipse and IDEA. I think Eclipse is much better for debugging apps - whereas it seems to be a real pain to setup IDEA to debug your appserver. I've only tried it with Tomcat, but I was never able to get it working with IDEA 4.5. With Eclipse's Tomcat Plugin, it takes less than a minute to setup. Eclipse is also a much better CVS client and handles multiple projects much better. I do use IDEA a fair amount, but mostly only on the Mac.
