Quoting the best part:

+HP leaves the decision of which development tool to use up to each individual developer. Various developers were using Eclipse, JBuilder, TogetherSoft, Forte and Text Editor. When one started using IntelliJ Idea for refactoring, "it took on like a virus. It was a grassroots movement, with almost the whole organization wanting that particular tool", Kratz explained.

JetBrains' refactoring is what caught the division's attention. None of the other tools had refactoring to the same level, according to Philip Zampino, senior software engineer. As a result of using IntelliJ Idea, "what used to take a couple of days to do thoroughly and completely takes only a matter of hours now", he said.

Kratz was quick to point out another benefit of using IntelliJ Idea: the quick response of JetBrains' developers to HP's questions. That can be attributed to JetBrains' Open Ideas Development philosophy, which sets it apart from the other Java IDE vendors.+

Congratulations for the JetBrains people. You're simply the best.

And now the shameless lie:

"We publish new builds every day", JetBrains' Belyaev said

Bad, bad Eugene :)

Well, maybe Eugene was a little enthusiastic. But his statement wasn't shameless.

At least, I don't know of any IDE vendor, who publishes new builds that often.

Hmm, I have no idea how "every few days" can be interpreted as "every day".
Maybe my English is not that perfect.
