Eclipse Site Lacks Spark

Eclipse just won the Jolt 2005 award in the “Languages and Development Environments” category.

But doesn’t mention it. The first link on the site in the main body is to a ‘white paper’ in PDF format last updated in 2003. The site uses frames. The FAQ was last updated in 2002. There are no screen shots linked anywhere off the home page despite the fact that there are 96 links in the main frame.

Compare and contrast basecamp which for all its qualities surely has less to shout about than Eclipse.

What am I missing here?

  1. I was perhaps a little harsh about the Jolt announcement as it did make it’s way on there shortly afterwards. But my general point still stands.
