Eclipse it is from now on.
Pity about Netbeans, as I had got quite used to it.
Now another PITA learning curve...

Tell me again why you aren't using NetBeans, then? It's not like
anyone's *forcing* you to use Eclipse.

I just brought up a NetBeans Android project in twenty minutes from
looking up the instructions to new project up and running, including
downloading the plugin.

Quote from:

"This tutorial assumes that you're using Eclipse. If you're not, see
Developing in Other IDEs. You can then return to this tutorial and
ignore anything about Eclipse."

You heard the man. He's complained about Eclipse. He expressed a
preference for NetBeans. Don't you want to help him have what he wants?
Why not give him the information that fulfills his preference and let
him decide?

He asked "What would people here recommend for doing Android stuff?".

There is huge benefits by using the IDE that the official
Android tutorial and examples uses.

So he got good recommendations for the question he asked.

It is not very realistic to consider a single tools best for
all usages.

No one is denying what people suggest about Eclipse. I responded to the OP's
explicit concern that it would be a "PITA" to learn Eclipse, and his express
desire to figure out how to use NetBeans. So I provided the information the
OP requested. You apparently feel that that freedom of choice should be
suppressed, and contradict your own suggestion that "It is not very realistic
to consider a single tools best for all usages." If you truly believed that,
you'd allow the comparison and let the OP make up their own mind.
