Mismatch between contents and audience,
This review is from: Embedded Linux Development Using Eclipse (Paperback)
Eclipse has grown significantly over the past years. It is actually a fairly decent code editor now. However, if you just follow the contents of this book, it will not grow beyond that - just an editor. And there are far better C/C++ editors than Eclipse.
In my experience, most people who develop for embedded Linux do not use Eclipse at all, unless they need to use specific plug-ins (as provided by the commercial Linux vendors - discussed at the end of the book).
I think that if you are just an application developer, you won't start using Eclipse after reading this book - you'll stick to what you are used to.
If you are a kernel developer, you have no reason to switch to Eclipse.
If you are a systems designer that needs to keep a group of application developers within your company happy by providing them with an IDE - this book might be for you. How many of you are there?
