These are all good things, but if the IDE editor can't handle basic stuff like 
international characters it's not very useful. Another thing is that the IDE 
looks very ugly. I know these are Linux especific, in windows Laz is great.
As they say, take this with a grain of salt, my ideal IDE is 
Kate+vim+bash+Konsole :-)

Btw, i hate Java :-)
