(Nearly) full tickless operation in 3.10
FYI, just checked and Eclipse (at least Juno/4.2) allows this. I can drag a source tab and place it next to my main source view.
Thoughts on the ext4 panic

No it's not easy; you are not supposed to do that. Instead, you are supposed to install and use whatever plug-ins give you the functionality you need *within* Eclipse.
Eclipse is the new Emacs: a Developer Operating System :-)

Hmm, I last poked at Eclipse a while back and got stuck in tile land till I gave up and moved on to try other IDEs which also left me in tiles. I find tiles most unsatisfying as I wind up spending my time fiddling with them and scrolling too small window fragments even on the biggest screen. I much prefer overlapping windows I can customize. I have been working in Kate which lets me arrange things as I like, permits multiple windows into the same source file and shares the screen well with windows from other programs.
Taking another look based on your message I got the Eclipse 3.7 Ubuntu offered me and found I can indeed get decent looking windows if I fiddle enough. It will take time to know if the fiddling stays excessive or I can tame it with more knowledge.
Of course it wants to mangle my code as I type. It really wants me to follow someone's idea of correct style and I know I will be some time getting it to stop helping me by making an awful mess of my code. Why exactly does it insist on extra * characters on each line? (No, don't answer that, I just want to turn it off.)
* I can really do without these fool *s.
* Much preference fussing and still I get *s.
Will have to see. Looking better than last time. Qt Creator and KDevelop never got me this far, not past tiles and tabs with them. So much IDE stuff filling the screen, so little space for the source code I actually care about.
