Talk:FAQ How do I increase the permgen size available to Eclipse?
I find the following two parts of this page confusing, or inaccurate. I think they should be deleted or reworded to make more sense to casual readers (i.e. novice users like me :)
Rather than delete them myself, thought I'd make this comment, in case the original author wanted to improve them.
Also, perhaps some links should be provided to the alternative JVM's mentioned?
Note that while "normal" download of Windows version of IBM JVM is intended only for upgrade of old IBM computers, IBM site contains special distribution of Eclipse prepackaged with IBM JVM. You may use thisdistribution directly of extract JVM from it.
Note that you need not install the same JVM int JRE list inside Eclipse if you do not wish to,
