NetBeans vs. Eclipse?

NetBeans vs. Eclipse. Which IDE are you using when you develop a Java ME application?

You know that Java ME SDK has been officially supporting only Eclipse platform. We wondered how many Java ME developers were using NetBeans versus Eclipse. So we did a quick poll. Here is the result.

120 people participated. 52% use NetBeans, while 34.5% use Eclipse as primary IDE. "Other" included IntelliJ. 34.5% is a significant number, so we are considering to add support for Eclipse in the future.

Do you agree with the result? What do you think?
