Anyone using OS X as their base development machine?  What do you use?  Can you compare to x86 stuff?  

I'm really considering picking up an iMac (or Powerbook) soon and would like to know I can still do some substantial work with it (java-gamedevelopment-wise).

I just picked up a PowerBook a week ago.

It comes with a lot of dev tools built-in.

For Java I have installed Eclipse 2.1 M5... I had to tweak some settings but it appears to be working now.  A lot of people use IDEA or JBuilder.

I also installed JEdit which works well for a lot of things.  Some people use it as an IDE with all the plugins.

Java 1.4.1 is still a developer preview release from Apple.  But you can get it for free if you agree to the NDA.  A 1.4.1 release on Mac shouldn't be far off.

Overall  I really like this machine.  With BSD Unix under the hood it has great potential. Apple has a X windows server that will runonthe Mac desktop so there are lots of possibilities. Of course the Mac Aqua UI is much nicer than X windows, and the Swing port has a great implementation of the native Aqua UI.

This hasn't become my base development machine yet.. but it is just a matter of time before I have everything configured.  I'm already using my Win XP box less and less.
