You meant 512MB right? Anyways If I put a gig of RAM, I can run at least 10 
virtual servers on it. You are saying it takes as much for an IDE and it is 
justifiable?

To be fair, I think if we play with the JVM settings and limit it to 256MB 
only, it might even perform well enough on a 512MB RAM.

Just for kicks and old habits die hard. Also what's the alternative? Eclipse? 
Not even sun would advise that.. ;)
