    Eclipse2 or Eclipse.net

    Got the option to either put Eclipse2 back or run Eclipse.net. What would you recommend if you use these library systems?

    I know very little about Eclipse.net and what it requires to run, can't lay my hands on the documentation at the moment, so if somebody could fill me in on that too. Be appreciated!

    The current version number, I wanted to see if it matched what I have on disc here. I've found it now though.

    Thanks!

    Sorry I don't have them in my office. They are over with the network manager. But .Net is great. Until your internet goes down.

    It'll only be internal anyway, at least for the time being, so that won't be an issue.

    What's all the moans about silverlight?

    It's dreadful and the implemention of Eclipse in it appears to drag it down in performance to below bearable levels. And the system requirements of a dual core processor etc with a gig of ram is a bit of a stretch for some of the more basic schools, and even then it's ruddy slow.

    It isn't exactly speedy on a machine with twice the cores and twice the RAM either

    We've stuck with Eclipse2. It's fast, reliable. I have had maybe one or two issues with it in the 5 years I've been at the school.

    .NET is Ok, but by no means a speedy piece of software.

    We've got it running on an old Dual CPU XEON and it maxes out both when running.
