Eclipse and why I hate it

At work I use Eclipse for development on an Android platform. If you are an android developer you may ask why I hate Eclipse. Well, lets first start with the key shortcuts. Those are horrible. And I mean really horrible if you are used to windows-default-shortcuts. But good for me they implemented a key-change-thingy so I can change the shortcuts to what ever I want. I did that and that worked fairly well until today. So what did happen?

We use perforce as a version system, so I also installed perforce plugin for Eclipse which sometimes deleted my code. Why? I don’t know. So to fix the problem I simple removed perforce plugin from Eclipse. Problem solved! Well, that’s what I thought. But what actually Eclipse takes revenge by deleting my key shortcuts that I set so it’s more Windows-like. FUCK YOU!! Good thing someone made a key scheme of VS6 shortcut keys I could import…

Next E-fucking-clipse also doesn’t seem to understand that you can change files outside the editor. You have to refresh manually. Why? just ask me if I want to load the newer version like any normal program would do!
