We're working on the Raspberry Pi remix here (it has to be a remix
rather than a spin for now). As I've written on the Raspi forums, anyone
expecting to use Eclipse on a Pi is probably dreaming -- there's just
not enough RAM. The model "B" device has 256M, but the GPU will normally
be allocated 64M, leaving 192M for apps. You can boot in as little as
11M, but after X and a DE, it doesn't look like there will be enough RAM
to use Eclipse without thrashing. (And frankly, until we get X connected
up to the GPU, it will be too painful.)

gedit with plugins is probably a more appropriate choice :-)
