When you reinstall the OS, everything that is on your harddisk will be deleted. So yes, that would ofcourse also delete NetBeans.

Isn't that saved in the VCS or on a server? ;)

Or at least a second partition? It's a good habit to have at least two partitions, one with the operating system and programs, and one with data, music etc.

Especially if you use *nix; having a partition with the /home mount point allows you to reinstall different OSs without losing work.
I am at present using a 64-bit ext4 partition, but calling 32-bit executables on another ext4 partition on the same machine

Can partitions be 32 or 64 bit?? I thought that was a property of the CPU, the OS and the executables only.

Yes, you are right. I have a 64-bit OS on this partition, and can use a 32-bit executable on another partition on the same hard disc.
