I'm currently constructing an Ontology Development Environment
(ODE) as a collection of Eclipse plug-ins (or more accurately, as a

requirement, but it demonstrates the successful marriage of
commercial and open source interests.
I've also used Eclipse as the foundation for 4 commercial tools of various
sorts. There is a huge Eclipse ecosystem with all kinds of support
for building open source and commercial tools.
Couldn't agree more.
