NetBeans versus IntelliJ

It appears there is a new release for NetBeans IDE. We now have NetBeans 4.0 to download and check out. It's got a lot of new features and support and now I have to decide whether or not to try out this new version or stick with the best IDE for JAVA I have found to date; IntelliJ IDEA. I've used NetBeans exclusively before I tried IntelliJ and I instantly switched to the ease of use that IntelliJ IDEA provided JAVA developers. Now it's time to reevaluate and see what NetBeans 4.0 brings to the table.

Comment I think the author was comparing primarily on functionality since he already has IntelliJ and was thinking of switching to NetBeans. I don't think that cost was an issue at this point. Maybe if the title was "Comparison of freeware IDEs" then I could agree with comments, but the title is "NetBeans versus IntelliJ" so I would think that the comparison is on functions and not price.

Comment I prefer IntelliJ IDEA but the fact is it is not ideal to compare a freeware to a 499$ worth software

Comment You're kidding, right? InteliJ IDEA costs $499 USD... NetBeans doesn't cost a cent. You should be comparing freeware IDEs to freeware IDEs, and commercial IDEs to commercial IDEs.

Comment I'll be sticking with IntelliJ IDEA. It's just too good. I like the new NetBeans but IntelliJ IDEA still has what it takes to get the job done. Nice, easy and elegant.

Comment Man, was this a useless article! Going to so much length to beautify and present a personal to-do item, and then luring people with a promising title.
