abandoning jbuilder, going to eclipse

With a heavy heart, I am now offficially abandoning JBuilder, and moving to Eclipse.

I will spend the next month playing with Eclipse 3.3 while it is in the final stages prior to release.  I am currently using 3.3m3

The basic problem I had is that the base functionality I need did not work out of the box, and Borland support was not able to help me.  I’m sure that if I paid for a support contract they could have spend the time resolving my issues, but I am not willing to take the gamble and pony up > 1000$ for a product when I am not sure it will meet my needs.

If and when JBuilder quality improves again, I may give it a try again but for the moment, I am sticking with Eclipse.
