As some others have posted, I think the only thing you would be
missing with Eclipse is the Design View in Dreamweaver. That's a big
deal for some. I'm not a designer, so I don't really miss it at all.
I got away from Dreamweaver a couple of years ago after using HomeSite
+/CF Studio and Dreamweaver for 6 years. I am in the process of
setting up a new machine for freelance work and have not even thought
about Dreamweaver. Eclipse, CFEclipse, Aptana, and Mylyn handle my
development. For graphics I did stick with Fireworks. As always
though, use what works best for you. Good luck.
