The replacement is called "WebSphere Studio Application Developer" and it's based on a technology called Eclipse. You can join the Eclipse developer community and get a free download for Eclipse by looking here:
For a bare-bones IDE Eclipse is pretty good. It's got a lot in common with IntelliJ. The cool thing about Eclipse is that it's expandable in the same way that Forte/NetBeans is, but in a more logical architecture. You can find lots more information on the newsgroup hosted at the Eclipse site.

Seriously, the IDE market is moving way to fast for this thread to be of any relevance anymore, in my opinion.
