Kept having "buggy" issues with Eclipse, memory issues, losing features,
etc...  I had to re-download PDT a couple of times, finally I just gave up.
After I saw NetBeans PHP support talked about in Site Point, I pulled the
trigger.  Functionally, I think it's much and more intuitive out of the
box.  If you make heavy use of task list, the task scanner can really bog
Net Beans down, but you can simply close it.   As an added bonus it has
great CSS support. :)

I agree I would use VIM if I had the patience, but I grew up in the
Microsoft world and switched to linux 3-4 yrs. ago so I do like me UI  :)
