I'm a IntelliJ IDEA user since late 2013. After a long (and not without problems) liaison with Eclipse IDE, and before that with the glorious Borland JBuilder, I wanted to try something new. Not that Eclipse was bad per se, it was just getting heavier and buggier release after release, and the plugin ecosystem wasn't anymore something you could rely on. I remember also giving NetBeans a last chance: NO WAY. So I thought "What's all this fuss around JetBrain IntelliJ IDEA?"
