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.
;JOOP!

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!
