  Well, there is no getting around the fact that it is a large app coded
in Java.  :)  But, on my 1.8GHz/512MB, it is pretty speedy now. "Usable"
I would say.

  I liked some of the simple C-coded IDEs, but I haven't found any
free/opensource/"in ports collection if possible" that really offer the
features of Netbeans, so I really can't compare apples to apples here. 
If you know of any, let me know, and I will try to compare them.

Hope that helps!
