He highlights the smooth install, visually appealing startup screen, its ability to work with existing projects, strong code completion and the maturity of the IDE. He goes on state how he appreciates “feeling the love during a first encounter with a tool.” He follows it up with another post with more a more detailed list of “great things” with NetBeans 6.0, as well as a few “gripes,” including problems with the SVN client and slow performance of the code completion.

4. NetBeans Does Not Work for Me — Mad Andys Bad Thoughts, 1/10

He then lists specific aspects to NetBeans that he does not like.
