Hi guys,
I use opensuse.
I want to download eclipse for programming.
I have a doubt.
First, they have a lot of things in their download page.
I am mainly into java, c++ and a little python.
So which is the version that suits me.
Second, If i download the eclipse IDE for java developers, will I be able to add c++ plugins and do c++ programming as well?
Please do help.

For Java or C++, just download the version for Java devs or C++ devs and install a plugin for the other language. For C++ development, look at the CDT plugin (http://www.eclipse.org/cdt/). If you want to go the other way and install the C++ IDE and then add Java, take a look at JDT (http://www.eclipse.org/jdt/). You may also want to give this (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2642069/eclipse-is-it-possible-to-have-cdt-and-java-ide-together) a read. For Python, you'll need PyDev (http://pydev.org/). Hope this helps.
