I was a big fan of ILEditor (or whatever it was called) but once I tried
VSCode with the RPG addons I was hooked... I tried eclipse, and I agree
with others... it's bloated and overly complicated for me.

And I concur with Jon: VS Code has always been WAY faster than
Eclipse. For me, Eclipse was the original and worst case of bloatware
in the realm of development tools.

I know I am a little late and I am pretty biased towards Eclipse (as
some may know) but Eclipse has so many facets that you cannot say
Eclipse is bloatware. You can get an Eclipse based installation which is
only a fraction of a VS Code installation in terms of MB. I had a full
fledged Eclipse based editor which had originally a download size of
less than 50MB.

Eclipse based products can be built in more than one way and some take
the easy way.

The Eclipse IDE download package is now pretty bloated (with 300MB
download size) and other packages are even bigger.

For me ... at the moment ... Eclipse RCP framework is the only way to go
if you want to develop a GUI application (non-browser) in Java.

VS Code is a nice text editor ... . The UI layout in VS Code is so
limited that it is not even an option for me. VS Code content assist is
too much "guessing" on the side of VS Code. Eclipse content assist is
much more sane and reasonable but that probably depends on what you are
editing in VS Code.

My 2 cents.
