So once in school, I went to my CS lab to find my friend cursing under his breath. On asking him, he tells me that he can't figure out how to print his code in BlueJ(our school requires us to use BlueJ). So I told him to download another IDE and use that instead. He had a look of bewilderment in his eyes and asked me what an IDE is. He was absolutely shocked to learn that you could write Java programs elsewhere.

P.S This was our fourth year of Java

    @AkshayTolwani Our school internet is not great but it's decent. Eclipse takes around 15 mins to install.

    Intellij is a beast for Java and you can get it for free as a student. It’s auto complete is pretty great too.

    @jpl20 I installed intelliJ. I find it much more intuitive. But I have heard that InoI uses Eclipse. So as of now I am using it just to get familiar with the IDE.
