Making Eclipse More Like Visual Studio

I’m very used to using Visual Studio for C++ and what not, but when I write Java on Eclipse, I’m not quite used to the interface, so I decided to make Eclipse more like Visual Studio.

Color Theme, Whitespace, and Intellisense (Code Completion)

I pretty much followed this guide: http://www.jackyliang.com/jackyresumecoding/2014/4/5/make-eclipse-work-more-like-visual-studio

For the whitespace section, the download link at the above site was broken, so I got the whitespace settings from here instead: http://www.webbiscuit.co.uk/making-eclipse-more-like-visual-studio/

Hotkeys

This guide: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/200499/visual-studios-keybindings-for-eclipse, Chris’s answer (not the chosen answer)

Interface

I solved this by not using the Eclipse Debug Perspective and just moving the debugger windows like I would in Visual Studio.  The other windows can be moved around within Eclipse to be more like Visual Studio.

    I believe Jacky Liang is a bit miffed, because his site: http://www.jackyliang.com/jackyresumecoding/2014/4/5/make-eclipse-work-more-like-visual-studio just shows a “Thank you from making me uncomfortable” message.

    I am trying to set up my Eclipse Mars version into a more Visual Studio like environment and I am having some problems finding a simple step by step set up process.
