Scala (best language ever, staticly typed, so IDE is a *huge benefit*) + Eclipse (awesome advanced) + Sublime Text 2 (extremely effective for writing) => Programmer's paradise :D

Sounds to me like one gigantic, bloated mess whose manual would be illegal to print in the interests of rainforest conservation.

Yeah, sublime text with really good intelligent refactoring/navigation tools would be amazing.

It's really incredible what you can do with Eclipse and Java if you can tolerate the slowness and horrible low level editing.

Scala is super Java by the sounds. Surely IDEs don't need to be as slow as all that?

I could definitely live without most of persistent views like 'outline views' in favour of 'nothing but the code'

if Jon sells to either Microsoft or Eclipse ill NEVER be buying any upgrades from them. ive never seen a single microsoft product that was worth a damn SPECIALLY their not IDE, and Eclipse is one of the single worst (badly designed, badly implemented, badly interfaced) pieces of software ive ever been forced to use. EVERY key press was sheer agony (only slightly worse than netbeans).

THIS editor just blows my mind. If Jon sells it at all it will degrade into a bloated pile of "make it do everything and who cares about the bugs or speed" horse manure. NOBODY will put their heart and soul into it the way he has.

if you are not offered at least 20 million dont take it jon!

There exists a beta-level integration with Scala's presentation compiler called "Ensime" on package control. We have already implemented on-the-fly error highlighting, completion and go to definition. I hope after the release of Scala 2.10.0-final I'll get some time to work on stabilization. You guys could help as well. Sorry for hijacking the thread, but that was a very good chance to speak up. If you're interested, let's discuss at viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8736.

I really hope he won't sell the project and this is just a joke :)

This is the thing most likely to happen in the future for ST (Similar thing happened many times in SV in the past decade).
