Eclipse PDT is bloating. I have a Intel 2.4 GHz quad core processor, 4G’s of RAM running a 64bit Debian and the latest Eclipse PDT still isn’t as responsive as I’d expect from state of the art software on more or less state of the art hardware. Netbeans unfortunately has the same issues.
So I was wondering, what are the alternatives? I’ve become quite a fan of the “UNIX principle”, meaning basically that a piece of software should do one thing, and do that one thing very well, with openness to other pieces of software. What, in your honest opinion, is something that fits that goal as a PHP editor? Everything goes, but please try to elaborate 🙂
