Actually, there's no difference between the two platforms in this 
regard.  OS X also has file associations, and when using them, Eclipse 
launches but doesn't open the file when you double-click on it, just 
like Windows.  I just tried it on Leopard against Eclipse

I guess this speaks well of Java's portability: even the bugs translate 
perfectly. :)

Don't get me wrong, it's great for free, I like a lot of what they've 
done, and I like the commoditization of development tools in general. 
It just needs a little more baking time in the usability oven.
