Hi there,
I've been using Eclipse for a while.
However, I've tried NetBeans recently.
Here is my point:

+ more speed and stability than NetBeans
+ more plugins available
+ better refactoring support than NetBeans

+ more clean than Eclipse in managing plugins and installs
+ better support for creating GUIs than Eclipse

What do you think?

I think the refactoring support in NetBeans is on a par with that in Eclipse.
  I also find NetBeans equivalently stable.

While Eclipse has "more plugins available", NetBeans has more functionality
built into the core product, so extra plugins aren't as necessary. I'd say
that one tilts toward NetBeans.

I discern no speed difference between the two. On what are you basing the
claim that Eclipse has "more speed"? What metric of speed?

I find the UI for NetBeans much easier for me to use, and deployment of Web
and Enterprise projects is much smoother in NetBeans. NetBeans's options are
much easier for me to configure, especially in the area of mounting databases
and application servers.

For the record, I use both Eclipse (and its IBM productized version, WSAD) and
NetBeans extensively, and have for years.
