How steep is the learning curve on NetBeans for some onme completely new to developmernt versus someone well versed in eclipse?

Should eclipse users stop comparing how things are done in eclipse. i.e. undo eclipse learning or you see lots of similarities.

For someone used to Eclipse the learning curve is not steep at all. The major hurdle would be to get used to a new set of keyboard shortcuts, however NetBeans provides Eclipse keybindings to make the transition easier.

Someone new to development will have a steep learning curve no matter what IDE that person is using.

Wow, I didn't know it had Eclipse bindings.

That's one major reason why I'm a bit hesitant of trying Netbeans, I'm already used to too many Eclipse shortcuts.

Thanks David!

To change the key bindings, go to Tools | Options | Keymap then select the Eclipse profile.
