What, “You don’t have IntelliJ money lying around to upgrade your IntelliJ?”
The last couple days we’ve been using the new term “IntelliJ money” when we’re talking about spending a big chunk of change on something. So it was especially funny when our resident IntelliJ guy made the comment that he couldn’t believe there was a new version. I said any real IntelliJ fan would have the latest and greatest. My buddy said he can’t afford to upgrade. I had the perfect opportunity to drop the double IntelliJ quote.

eclipse upgrade are free 🙂
So is NetBeans.
A personal edition upgrade of IntelliJ IDEA is on $150, and the commercial is $300. For a professional software development organization, that’s chump change. It would costs weeks of lost productivity for a skilled IDEA developer to move to Eclipse. Sounds like you’re being penny-wise and pound-foolish.
I will use whatever IDE my boss tells me to use. 😉
