As I said on the Jira, I'm not very pleased about the current implementation
of the Cocoa version of Eclipse.
My Cocoa Eclipse wouldn't restart after a fresh install of Subclipse when I
tested it, and the UI still feels like a work in progress to me. It's not as
unified as is the Carbon version.
So I think we'll stick with Carbon until Eclipse 3.6.

However, I was also wondering about a Windows 64 bit version... But as, I
don't have any machine to test it on, it would be very hard to know if we're
delivering a working app...
Someone can help us on that?

Oh yeah that's true. That's a good workaround for those users.
