Why do I use the IntelliJ IDEA ? I have a powerful netbean and eclipse. Is netbean not enough ? What is the best part of IntelliJ IDEA over netbean?

Hmm, lets see, NetBeans is built upon Ant which makes it rather complicated to use with projects already having Ant scripts. When trying to use NetBeans, I've been told (not exact words) - "There's already build.xml file. Unable to create project." Fantastic! This is the IDE of the future I would like to keep my build.xml and would like to have it simple so that I can understand what is in it. Also, I would like to have total freedom of creating my project's dir structure without IDE telling me how to do it.

I suggest that you download the trial version, install it and try it for a while and you will never look to another IDEs.
The refactoring and ctrl+alt+n features of IntelliJ are some I like most.
