Haven't tried it. Tried 5.5 and immediately went back to Eclipse. I'll try 6. What are the odds that it will stay installed for longer than a day? :) We'll see.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I'll try it on my next project. Not sure when or what it will be, but I think it'll worth a shot.

It's pretty good with the added C/C++ , Ruby support et al even the shortcuts are better tuned ...use the tab instead of space after psvm etc. ...Nvr tried eclipse though :(

A number of good improvements since 5.5. However, the basic install did not make a happy icon in my Gnome menu. The thing isn't in the path, either, so I had to hunt it down. If you want to make your own icon for it, here's my code:

cat > /usr/share/applications/netbeans6.desktop <<EOT
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Terminal=false
Exec=/usr/local/netbeans-6.0/bin/netbeans
Terminal=0
Name=NetBeans 6
Icon=/usr/local/netbeans-6.0/nb6.0/netbeans.png
Categories=Application;Development;Java;IDE;
EOT



This is easiest if run as root. Sadly, sudo cat.. just don't work. So, to Ubuntu/sudo users, do a sudo -s first.

Enjoy.
