Some Monday mornings you just know it is going to be a great week. 🙂
This morning in my e-mail I find a Google alert with the title ‘The Coming Eclipse of Visual Studio‘. The article is based on a press release from Evans Data that indicates in Europe/EMEA Eclipse is closing in on Visual Studio as the dominant IDE. Also, equally impressive is that the usage of Eclipse RCP is expected to triple over the next 2 years.
As point out in the article, Eclipse usage is growing in popularity with Java but also C++ and PHP developers. Therefore, it was great to see this blog post from a C++ developer recommending what features Microsoft should steal from Eclipse.
