Question Java IDE's?

I don't think this has been asked in a while. What java IDE's do people like using, and why.

I've used eclipse, and found it complicated to debug, especially multithreaded apps.

JBuilder seems to be good, but the source code that it autogenerates won't work in another IDE, you have to commit to it until you export your jar file.

IntelliJ is excellent. Pretty IDE with hardcore features, and a very fast GUI since the last version. Also very intuitive.

I used all these in windows, and although they are available for linux, I thought maybe the community has other althernatives

Appreciate any contribs to this,

I used JCreator on Windows. I think it's the fastest Java IDE I've tested. The problem is that is a shareware and it's only for Windows (It's not writed in Java). I've tried with NetBeans but it was really slow.

Im surprised to hear NetBeans is slow. It got a great review in Linux Format. SunOne Studio was very slow too though, and it's based on that.
