Thanks for the motivation. It's on my todo list. ;)

Free, but GPL incompatible :(


: This additional requirement renders the CPL incompatible with the GPL
: (in the opinion of Eben Moglen), though it is possible that a future
: version of the GPL will adopt a similar, compatible clause.

But probably the other reason for incompatibility is that it doesn't
sufficiently discourage non-free code:

: while still retaining the ability to use the CPL'd content with
: software licensed under other licenses, including many commercial
: licenses.

And then just to confuse things, the eclipse web site says that it's
using version 0.5 of the CPL:
(i haven't checked the source).

Personally, i'd put this on a "waiting to hear other opinions in
the free software community" list... But thanks for the suggestion

Meanwhile, i'll add anjuta, which is also an IDE, to my todo list:
