Netbeans IDE --- anybody have bad experiences?

If you like it now, consider how quickly it was improved. The milestones came thick and fast, before giving way to the better betas and the release candidate. Even the nightlies had a reputation for quality.

If there is something you *hate* about it, chances are it won't stay that way for long.

As usual, its a big java IDE. Which usually means memory hungry. However the Ruby only version is pretty tidy.
