very interested to see if the possibilities from a web tools platform perspective. flash obviously has a role to play in those sorts of applications, so the synergies are obvious. on the Netbeans v Eclipse front, do a quick search on here and you'll find a few past entries concerning the relative support i see for that platforms. but the short answer is that yes, i see NetBeans making gains, but almost every ISV i speak with is developing to Eclipse. that, to me, is why Eclipse has critical mass.

(disclosure - I work for IBM and am biased towards Eclipse as a platform) I was also happy to see this news - as you said big validation of Eclipse as a platform beyond Java tools. I'll be particularly interested to watch if Macromedia provides rich integration with the nascent Eclipse Web Tools Platform Project. This is an emerging project intended to provide a standard, open-source, free toolkit for web-based projects (both J2EE and non-J2EE). I can imagine that Macromedia tools integrated with other Eclipse HTML and J2EE tools would be a powerful combination. This is mere speculation at this point. PS - Do you have any thoughts on Eclipse vs. NetBeans as platforms? Schwartz always claims that NetBeans is winning mindshare, but all of the news I read seems to point towards Eclipse winning this battle for the hearts and minds of develoeprs. Again, as an IBMer, I'm biased towards Eclipse.
