IDEs: Netbeans

As I've mentioned before, I use Netbeans with the jVi plugin. It's enough IDE to improve my productivity without being so much that I feel overwhelmed. Using the jVi plugin makes a Vim fanatic like me feel right at home.

Just in case it's helpful, here's my NetBeans setup (in outline form):
Setup NetBeans:
Downloaded the Ruby pack.
It's a shell script. Run it as root. Don't install GlassFish.
It installs to /usr/local/netbeans-6.8.
To uninstall: /usr/local/netbeans-6.8/uninstall.sh
There is a menu item to run it.
After install:
Installed the Python plugin:
Jython distribution.
Installed the PHP plugin.
Installed the Cucumber Features plugin.
Installed the nbgit plugin by downloading it manually.
Installed the jVi plugin by downloading it manually.
Setup jVi:
Tools >> Options:

Control-Key Bindings:
Click Control-V to enable rectangle edit.
Unclick Control-W so I can close windows quickly.
Set the default font to Monospace 12:
Make sure you're not setting the whitespace category.
