I recently crossed paths with my good friend Oliver Gierke from Pivotal, the company behind the the Spring framework.
Oliver complains since a while about the Eclipse 4 IDE user interface experience. His complains could be summerized by the following picture.
Now fortunately we met at the german JAX conference and I could tell him about the numerous improvements in the UI which the platform team did. They are displayed in the next picture.
I was happy to hear from Oliver that he really likes these changes and is looking forward to Eclipse 4.
