View Full Version : Eclipse 2.1 is out

29-03-2003, 07:31:54
By far the best development IDE (available on virtually every platform, too) next to Visual Studio .NET is now out in a massive update called 2.1: www.eclipse.org

I've been using Eclipse 2.0.2 extensively over the past year for my school projects, and it makes programming so much easier. :bouncmsk:

While Eclipse is open source, it's actually developed by a whole bunch of IBM software engineers in a professional environment. No pansy-assed volunteer I'll-do-it-when-I-feel-like-it losers.

There are many kinds of IDEs, development IDEs implies software development.

For example, Flash MX is an IDE -- but not a development IDE.

And redundancy is useful sometimes.

DNS Server is redundant, but is there a difference between DNS and DNS Server? Yes.

No it's not, DNS stands for Domain Name System.

I've always been told it stood for Domain Name Server.

There are so many acronyms that the original meanings don't mean that much any more. DNS is DNS, DHCP is DHCP, etc... And yes, I've also forgotten parts of them too. What does the U in UDP stand for anyway? :)

User. :)

DNS was one of the ones I lost marks on in my high school infotech class. The other was TCP, which is apparently Transmission CP and not Transfer CP (whereas the T in FTP stands for Transfer).
