So what? I'm a professional developer. I make money using these tools.
The money people pay for IntelliJ is one reason that the Scala support
in IntelliJ is more ambitious and why the IntelliJ Clojure plugin is
more advanced. I'd happily pay for NetBeans or Eclipse, and/or support
for Clojure and Scala. I buy a lot of software, and when I use good O/
S software, I donate $ to support it e.g. Firebug.
IntelliJ is cheap for a personal license (USD$249). Even VisualWorks
Smalltalk, for which I pay 5% of my gross billings, is good deal
because the productivity benefits pay for themselves.
