Eclipse vs Netbeans

In class about some comments about the relative merits and popularity of these IDEs, so I thought I'd try and get some data on it. Below is (possibly?) a measure of their relative popularities:

eclipse ide 
1.00
  
netbeans ide 
0.40

A plus for Eclipse is that it has support via plugins for much more than just java and cvs.

Example: I'm using Eclipse to develop a web app with the google app engine, svn, and python.

Point: Eclipse as an IDE is worth getting used to even if you don't like it for java because it is used for many other development environments.

Actually, NetBeans also supports the app engine, svn, python, etc.

NetBeans' list of plugins is nowadays just as long as eclipse's.

Are we having a flamewar yet?
