NetBeans does not only do Java
By alexismp on janv. 10, 2006
David Berlind is on a roll with anti-netbeans assertions asking this time "Is 2006 the year that NetBeans begins to unhitch its wagon from the Java horse?".
The answer is that 2005 was the year Coyote was born and I'm not sure about Sun Studio's C/C++/Fortran, but that's old news.
As for the "It does Linux too" comment about Eclipse, it's simply funny when you look at the issues Eclipse faces on Linux and 64-bit platforms.... NetBeans is Swing and portable as such (they even have OpenVMS support!).
Update: thanks to Huntch for this Python in NetBeans link.
