Top 5 Signs that your IDE is bloated

I've been playing around with a lot of new languages recently as part of getting All The Code ready, and I've tried numerous IDEs (camelia, radrails/eclipse, etc.) for different languages (ocaml , ruby , c, etc.) and they all seem to suffer from extreme bloat.

#5 It uses more ram memory FireFox with 30 tabs
#4 You can see a refresh rate as you type
#3 It takes longer to load than the rest of your operating system
#2 If someone replaced it with a web-based application you wouldn't notice the delays
#1 The developers claim it does more than emacs.


Whats the lesson of this story? There isn't one, except that writing blog posts while waiting for batch jobs to run is good way to pass the time.
