Subject Re: Eclipse vs other IDEs (was: Re: Ide for Open Office (was Building OO))

About 5 years ago, when I tried to used Netbeans to open a large C project
(the Wine project, about 2 million lines), it was unusably slow, and its
C/C++ indexer crashed.

I don't know if it has improved since then, but we have 6 times more code,
and it's C++, not the much simpler C. Eclipse invested serious development
effort into its Eclipse CDT parser, even writing static analysis tools with
it and developing code refactoring. How good is Netbeans?
