Eclipse 3.4 to NetBeans 6.5 M1

It is time to get back into NetBeans. It used to be my primary IDE before Eclipse hit the scene and now with its excellent Ruby and now PHP support it seem appropriate to start re-learning how it works.

It is certainly faster now and the UI is cleaner than it used to be. Steps in the right direction.

This is where things went horribly wrong.

Import an eclipse java project into a netbeans java project. Netbeans decided that I didn't want my "build" directory anymore so replaced it with it's own. How assignign is that.

So, first hint, do not, import an eclipse project into a netbeans project if you have a build directory.
