No, IMO that's the reason why many guys use Eclipse ;)

this one was really funny!

I sent it to my boss (I am the lone IDEA user in an all eclipse shop)
He got a kick out of it.

I used to try and sell and push IDEA to all the eclipse people at my
office, but unfortunately I don't feel confident about the stability and
quality enough to do that anymore -- IDEA does get most of my needs met
at the end of the day, but there are a lot of irritating glitches (and
it seems like the glitches almost always show up when you're trying to
show off IDEA to someone!) but I'm still too addicted to it to change
myself.

It's not like Eclipse doesn't have it's own equally or more annoying glitches (more like, soul sucking, frustrating bugs). This comes from someone who's forced to use IBM Rational Application Developer all day long...

Yes you are right, Eclipse has it's share of nasty glitches.

I don't think there are any really good alternatives at this stage- the
Java IDE's are just getting too big and complex, and once you get over a
certain bloat threshold it's almost impossible to keep on top of all the
bugs and issues. So it becomes harder and harder to keep all of the
users happy.

That's true. And in sad news to JetBrains, it also becomes harder and harder to switch IDE's -- the learning curve is too high when you've been using the same monstrous IDE for the last 5 years.
