It used to be a Java IDE

NetBeans started as a Java IDE, one of the first open source projects at Sun. It was long time ago ('99). Since then, it has evolved rapidly, especially in the last couple of years and became more than an IDE. It is also a platform. In addition , NetBeans has become a delivery vehicle for cool technologies from Sun and the Open Source (e.g. JRuby, GlassFish, Tomcat). Some people may argue that, lately, NetBeans has become choice IDE for Ruby developers. How about the support for C/C++ and UML? It is all there.

Ballsy statement, netbeans is still mainly seen as a Java IDE.

Not only it provides features for Ruby, UML, C/C++ but also provides extended support for PHP scripting.

I also liked its new Module Management system.
