I don't want to get shot, but the C++ tools from M$ are not too bad, VisualStudio is the only product under Windows which didn't make want to pluck my eyes out with a table spoon.

Never used Eclipse but in general, what sets the Visual Age products apart is how object-oriented they are. In fact, I think that they are mostly written in Smalltalk. I can see where object-orientation can suck but when it works, for the user it is really great. There are some old articles at EDM/2 describing several compilers. It's kind of interesting how far some of this stuff has come in a relatively short time.

Doesn't Visual Studio push that MDI crap ? Ugh !
