Hi,
I am running MacOs 10.3.n and I experienced NetBeans to run more stable and reliable than Eclipse. Also the whole setup process to me seemed more intuitive with NetBeans.
I never tried X code so I can't judge on that.

I suggest you go with netbbeans as it is most stable OS IDE for mac os.
i think most of netbeans stability is because of swing based GUI design.
by the way +1 for netbeans

If you are judging on pure stability, Xcode will beat anything else hands down as it is a native application. Whether its feature set meets the OP's needs is another question.

Personally, I use IntelliJ IDEA but that's off the table for anyone who thinks "best" means "free".

I've only used Eclipse (versions 3.1 and 3.2) on my Mac (OS X 10.4.7) and it hasn't crashed on me once. It's as snappy as on Windows/Linux and I haven't felt the need to look elsewhere.

I dont really think that free means best, but I'm still in High School so spending $500 on anything is impractical and I dont mind using a cheap compiler. I asked out of curiosity.

I personally use Eclipse 3.2 on OS X Tiger...

Was awarded IntelliJ IDEA (full version) for presenting at the San Diego Java Users Group (SDJUG).

Blogged my experience with Eclipse vs. IntelliJ IDEA here.

Feel free to read the comments... I got a lot of responses!

I think it boils down to personal preference but I have heard some great things about NetBeans and XCode.

Just my two cents,

My coworkers went to WWDC and were told that Xcode is being deprecated soon and half the dev team at Apple is using Eclipse and the other half is using another app...I believe it is the one mentioned above by the guy who said it was awarded by the San Diego JUG.

I said that IntelliJ IDEA was awarded to me by the SDJUG for presenting, but never that XCode is going to be deprecated. I can't see it being deprecated because it forms the basis for cocoa app development.

You might be referring to someone else posting a comment regarding XCode on my blog?

Cheers,
