NetBeans IDE Passes 1 Million Users

NetBeans has announced that it now officially has more than 1 million active users. "That's not downloads," says NetBeans senior manager John Jullion-Ceccarelli. "That number represents people who are regularly using NetBeans IDE each month. NetBeans IDE has come a long way.”
