I used that color scheme before, but it reminds me to an awfully soul sucking project so I drop it.
From that screenshot,
- ra4king uses Win 8
- ra4king has lots of project, some of them are naughty
- ra4king is too lazy to close projects
Yeah some projects are private and/or embarrassing
And what's the point of closing projects? Eclipse opens in 5 seconds, no slowdown from the number of projects open.
Why use the sin that is win8? (no offense, I just dislike it personally)
Dual monitor support, super fast and snappy, I don't mind metro, I love the new UI, including ribbon in Explorer and new copy dialog.
Otherwise, my parents paid for the $40 upgrade haha.
how could you have black background and bright text ? it would fuck my eyes up in a matter of seconds
also I have never more than the current project opened. I would imagine that eclipse needs a long time for a restart.
and also I like to "clean all open projects" frequently, since eclipse often times has problems and that fixes it...
I prefer it to a bright color scheme, especially since I work at night and my eyes would kill me with bright colors.
Just like sproingie said, Eclipse is designed for many projects. Startup is still 5 seconds, barely any change when I closed all the projects to test.
I never have any problems with Eclipse that have needed me to clean all projects or to muck with build settings.
If you think that dark theme is sexy, check out the Darcula theme in IDEA
. I might change to it eventually, since I always seem to end up with a dark theme in emacs anyway.
That theme is what will finally cause me to jump ship and switch to IDEA one day. For now, I'm lazy
If anyone wants my color scheme for Eclipse: http://eclipsecolorthemes.org/?view=theme&id=1871
That website has MANY gorgeous themes premade and has an interface to create your own too!
To import a theme, download the EPF file, and import it using File -> Import -> General -> Preferences
