I recently purchased a new iMac that runs Mac OS X 10.4.6.  I normally use JBuilder on both windows and mac machines as an IDE but I have tried installing JBuilder 2005 on this mac and it will not install and apparently JBuilder 2006 isn't for mac.  So, does anyone have any suggestions as to what IDE's I should try or even better a way to install JBuilder on this new iMac.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

NetBeans and Eclipse should work fine on Mac OS
also take a look at Apple's own development environment: http://developer.apple.com/tools/xcode/index.html

In case of ECLIPSE, see  http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/S-3.2RC7-200606021317/index.php
for details about their latest JDK (117Mb)
Should be no problem to use ECLIPSE both on Windows and OSX,
I use it on W98, XP and SuSE LINIX. All versions are free.

IntelliJ kicks ass.  Not free.  Worth it.  Eclipse uses SWT, which blows on anything that is not windows.  IntelliJ uses swing.  Load up your computer with RAM!
