Paul Brown writes about his troubles getting AspectJ editing to work in Eclipse. His solution was to switch over to Emacs. Ironically, he uses this experience to relearn the lesson that “it is better to pay with money than with time” and saying that this is “also why people shouldn’t be shy about paying for or charging money for (working) software”.

I’m not so sure that RMS would be pleased about someone finding a solution in Emacs and then saying that people should not have a problem paying for working software 🙂
