We don’t need no stinking expensive IDE Solutions….

I came across an article over on the Gaurdian talking about the real lack of need to the larger more established solutions.  When you start developing on Linux or FreeBSD the points in the article ring even clearer.  Even if you are developing Java applications whether you should use the free eclipse solution or a packaged eclipse solution like IBM’s RSA or RAD or the much cheaper MyEclipse‘s cheaper but still costing solution.  If you want to save your company money take just a little bit of time and something to develop and look at the many free and open source options available.
