Its probably me, but the lovely people from the Eclipse.org project could really do with a whack from the clue stick.
The front page of the web site has no "start here" or "introduction" sections. The link to the downloads is just a list of mirrors, no indication of what to do once you get there.
People, if you want idiots like me to use your tools give us at least a simple guide to download and installation. A noddy tutorial for when you start using the tool is also useful, but as I don't know how to install it yet, that's probably a step too far.
Before anyone starts accusing me of being any more stupid than I have admitted to so far, I have downloaded the SDK package (all 62 megabytes of it). That contains a README file, which also has no mention of how to do an installation. Bloody marvellous, and about as useful as a chocolate fireguard.
