I see the conversation pop up from time to time about whether developers should use Sun/Oracle's NetBeans or MyEclipse. Mainly, folks are looking at utilizing the NetBeans designer (formerly Matisse) in a supported, Eclipse-based environment.

While every tool has its fans, rough economies should tend to sway developers towards the tools and skills that employers are demanding. After all, we're all here to make a living and not to just do what's popular, right?

This trending info shows it's a no-brainer. More employers are trending towards hiring workers skilled in MyEclipse. Think about it.
