It looks like Eclipse has a tougher learning curve - for starters they
ditch AWT and Swing. Then again, the docs are in a somewhat better state
so that might offset it all a bit.

For people too lazy too browse - first few entries from the FAQ:

 Overview:

   1. What is the Eclipse Project?

      The Eclipse Project is an open source software development project
dedicated to providing a robust, full-featured, commercial-quality,
industry platform for the development of highly integrated tools. It is
composed of three subprojects, Platform, JDT - Java development tools,
and PDE - Plug-in development environment. The success of the Eclipse
Platform depends on how well it enables a wide range of tool builders to
build best of breed integrated tools. But the real vision of eclipse as
an industry platform is only realized if these tools from different tool
builders can be combined together by users to suit their unique
requirements, in ways that the tool builders never even imagined. The
mission of the Eclipse Project is to adapt and evolve the Eclipse
Platform and associated tools to meet the needs of the tool building
community and its users, so that the vision of eclipse as an industry
platform is realized.

   2. What is the Eclipse Platform?

      The Eclipse Platform is an open extensible IDE for anything and
yet nothing in particular. The Eclipse Platform provides building blocks
and a foundation for constructing and running integrated
software-development tools. The Eclipse Platform allows tool builders to
independently develop tools that integrate with other people's tools so
seamlessly you can't tell where one tool ends and another starts.

   3. What is the Eclipse SDK?

      The Eclipse SDK (software developer kit) is the consolidation of
the components produced by the three Eclipse Project subprojects
(Platform, JDT - Java development tools, and PDE - Plug-in development
environment) into a single download.

      Together these pieces provide a feature-rich development
environment that allows the developer to efficiently create tools that
integrate seamlessly into the Eclipse Platform.
