[ide-dev] -7.5% absolute, -14% relative user loss this year


See http://www.baeldung.com/java-in-2017

The part about IDEs shows sad statistics about amount of users lost by Eclipse Java IDE last year. There is no details about the reasons, but I think those were most covered in previous messages on this list and it always brings to the User Experience being better in IJ (which is better at anticipating user needs and asking them for less actions to code efficiently).
On the other hand, comments on Twitter about Neon release seem overall positive; better than the state of 6months~1year ago. I have no magic idea of how to improve all that, I can just encouraging all of us to make things better and better and to always think about helping the end-users as much as possible when developing for the IDE.
