Mutliple Eclipse Installs: How To

1. Update the Eclipse plugin.xml to a different "appName"

/usr/home/t/eclipse-4.10/plugins/org.eclipse.epp.package.java_4.10.0.20181214-0600/plugin.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?eclipse version="3.4"?>
<plugin>
   <extension
         id="product"
         name="Java IDE"
         point="org.eclipse.core.runtime.products">
      <product
            application="org.eclipse.ui.ide.workbench"
            name="Eclipse IDE">
         <property
               name="preferenceCustomization"
               value="plugin_customization.ini">
         </property>
         <property
               name="appName"
               value="Eclipse-410">
         </property>

Test Automation: How Programming Languages Rate

Was mulling over the C#/Java situation & couldn't find a compelling reason to use C# other than for WhiteBox Testing. It is slaved to M$ OS & ecosystem, meaning that any hardware used as a test fixture is going to have 40G of bloatware & 1000 background services running which doesn't seem efficient or advisable when consistent results are paramount.

Jumping on the web & AutomationPanda.com seems to come to the same conclusion - though has a preference of Python, probably due to it being a little more lightweight. I just can't get with the syntax/format marriage. I'm not a fan of formatting being a part of syntax. I suppose it forces some standardization of coding styles, but who says that standard is the best approach.
