Initially running Eclipse with plugin on Windows 8 (on VMWare Fusion on OS X host) as it seemed like the easiest way to start as the install is so polished. With all the issues with Java recently I don't feel like risking my main OS X installation.
But today I have installed CrunchBang Linux http://crunchbang.org/
with Eclipse and plugin (again on VMWare Fusion on OS X host). Having a few problems with the USB port, going to post seperately on that.
I use the command line tools like nxjbrowse and nxjcontrol.
