I would bet on ECLIPSE
go to www.eclipse.org  and see how huge their collection of tools is.
ECLIPSE is fast, smart and reliable, even if you fooled around with its files.
Last: as you don't install it, but just put it somewhere, minimal interference with the O.S.
;JOOP!

To put in one word, most people believe that Eclipse and NetBeans are neck to neck. IDEA costs 500$ for a license which people have sorta agreed to be too costly (Again, a debatable personal opinion)

To me, Eclipse sorta has the main issues like MODULAR components etc addressed via plugins. IDEA is slowly getting there. My bet is on Eclipse :)

Since you have an Oracle Background, I would also want to suggest that if you are looking to use components like Oracle ADF (http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&ct=res&cd=1&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oracle.com%2Ftechnology%2Fproducts%2Fjdev%2Fhtdocs%2Fpartners%2Faddins%2Fexchange%2Fjsf%2Findex.html&ei=nG5YRbfPMIiusAL39OGJBg&usg=__5sfcVuwgOfZjUj-wjRJdCSt2VuU=&sig2=7dAfCblSu2ywmb8X2CLo2g) JSF etc (which Oracle seems to back heavily) JDeveloper is better.

JDeveloper has excellent support for a ADF which is Oracles own App Dev Fwk, I would suggest Jdeveloper *if and only if* you are going to use ADF inside out.

For all other *sane* purposes ;) eclipse should do just fine
