The last time I tried it (probably 3 years ago so maybe their defaults
are now changed?) -- at that time anyway when I gave it more memory on
startup it seemed to perform a little better.
-Xms512m -Xmx1024m in eclipse.ini
(or double or bump even higher).
But I abandoned it when I discovered it couldn't substitute 2000 lines
in any reasonable time on a recent Dual Core Thinkpad
(unlike vim or emacs).
It's unlikely to be useable or even runnable on the Original Poster's
Windows 98 box.
